Cool Word of the Week Contest - Solatium

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 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 by noon on January 14, 2012.
