2012 is getting started, and I am restarting the Cool Word of the Week Contest (CWOWC)! Except this one is kind of a week-and-a-half contest, since the deadline for the first one of the year is January 14, 2012.
Anyway, the person who uses the CWOWC in the most creative way wins a free eBook copy of Darkwoods. Send your entries to DarkwoodsBooks@aol.com and put "CWOWC" in the subject line. I need to receive the entry by noon on Saturday, January 14, 2012.
This week's Cool word of the Week is: solatium [soh-ley-shee-uhm]
It means "something given in compensation for inconvenience, loss, or injury."
Here's a sample: "When Zuryzel's brother lost his favorite belt, she gave him a hug, but it wasn't much of a solatium."
So, see how creative you can be and email your entry to me at DarkwoodsBooks@aol.com by noon on January 14, 2012.
