One of my work in progress is called Baby Blues. It is book two to my Second Chance Series. I just got it back from my editor a couple of days and came across a comment she had made on the word "relucted." I had used describing Eric's unwillingness for her to work. The other forms of the word are reluctance (N) and reluctant (Adj) Even reluctantly is an adverb, but I wanted to stay away from "ly" words as much as possible. Her comment was "I'm not sure I would use that word." Well, I relucted to change. You see as much as I thought reluctance could have a verb like the word adverse, aversion, or adversely, why couldn't reluctance come in verb form? It actually means to show reluctance https://www.wordhippo.com/what-is/another-word-for/relucted.html. So how about I write Eric already showed reluctance? I would just have to add another word. and also "ance" I'm very reluctant to do so, but according to my friends on Facebook they all say it is not a word. I even looked it up in my dictionary and it agrees with them. You are my readers and if you came across that word in my story, and you go "huh"?, I better change it.
In a comment below, name a word that doesn't have a verb form and just fun turn it into a verb. I bet you can come up with one. Give it a try!
Happy day after Thanksgiving!
I have a lot of gratitude! In spite of being sick with mild pneumonia, God had shown his goodness to me! In the month of August I got my job back as a sub only for Lemoore Schools. I am more needed there and I am blessing to the teachers and the staff. However, as my job began, my cover sales as decreased. I no longer make premades, but I will customize covers. All my premades are discounted.
I have been working on my manuscripts and wrote a new story which I plan to publish late next year or later. For now, I have three stories I want to republished and I had found editor who has helped me improve on my writing. Expect a December release of the Past Hunter and a late winter release of a Second Chance at Love.
