Lessons Learned: Accomplished

A couple of weeks ago my daughter used this word to describe how she felt when she was lying in bed between her fiancé and her son as both of them snored. She never thought that she would feel so peaceful, being proud of her little family. And then after her statement was the words “Feeling accomplished.”

The word “accomplished” has stuck with me since her post. She described being happy, satisfied, content, loved, whole, and proud all at once. For her, the accomplishment came at one moment in time to describe her emotion. For authors, we love words like this to use when we write. Each word in a story has to have meaning. Writing one word can be more powerful than a dozen words describing the same thing.

Thank you, Willow. I bet I’ll be using “accomplished” in my next novel. 
