That’s Awesome

If you’ve ever talked to me for more than five minutes, you’ve probably heard me say the word awesome. And probably more than once.

You see, I have a slight addiction to the word.


Awesome awesome awesome.

Just got a new car? Awesome.

Your baby slept through the night? Awesome.

Finished your novel? Sooo awesome.

Yeah, I can’t stop. It may not seem like it, especially on Facebook, but I actually censor myself and don’t allow myself to say awesome nearly as often as I want to. So if I ever say something is great or fantastic, know that my instinct was to say Awesome!

Okay, ‘fess up. What word do you overuse in your everyday life?

    I’ve recently noticed that I’ve started saying awesome in reference to things – I wonder if I picked it up from you?

    My word of the moment is amazing – I just had to remove 7 different occurences from my WIP, lol.
