In the last month, I read “Killing Malmon” featuring 30 Authors…One Victim. The book is edited by Dan and Kate Malmon and benefits MS. This was my bedtime story book, and I enjoyed reading the short stories on how to kill Dan. I’m sure Kate was fascinated too – she’s Dan’s wife!
Kate has MS and this is their way of helping the MS Society by donating the royalties earned from their book to the cause. The stories are pretty creative and it’s amazing how many different ways you can kill one person! There’s a mix of humor, drama, jealousy, and total crime. If you have a chance, check out the book. Great stories and a great cause!
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.
