SENTENCE WRITING CONTEST: Every Monday a new, interesting vocabulary word will be posted here, as well as a sentence using that word.

Your job is to create and post a new, better sentence in the comment box, using the same word. Yes, you may change the form of the word. Yes, I’ll be the judge. Yes, I am a subjective judge  ( I like clever or funny, I hate bigotry).

The winning sentence will be announced here the following Monday.


SENTENCE TO BEAT:     He sought the power of wind, of tide, of sun . . . but he forgot to look for the power of love; I slipped it into my pocket and slid into the back hall.
