Tuesday’s Word

Ineffable

adjective
so impressive or beautiful that you cannot describe it

This morning I went in search of a word that fit the Valentines Day theme and was one that I didn’t know.  Mission accomplished.  Now as for the definition . . . I’m not sure I’d use ineffable in my writing since it’s a writer’s job to describe.  That said, I can see a character being so in awe of something or someone that the thing or person momentarily defies description.  But it’s going to eventually have to be described or the reader will feel gypped.  Just sayin’.

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
