Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
I managed to add a couple of hundred words to a WIP, and accomplished some editing on it as well. I have a plan to incorporate the comment fic and Word of the Day prompts into said WIP, and to publish it to AO3 as I go. Hopefully that'll help force me to actually FINISH something for once. :}   So now it's your challege day,  jennytork - good luck, hope the words are with you!
