“Sheesh. That was the ickiest, gooiest, yuckiest thing I’ve ever done.”
“Yeah, me too. Ya’ wanna’ try it again tomorrow?”
“I guess. Grab our coats before Ms. Stuffy catches us in here.”
Whew! Fancy a guess at what this weekend’s Trifextra challenge wanted drizzled into our 33 word count? The buzz word was:
ONOMATOPOEIA. Easy for you to say! (In this case, not the word, itself – but at least one of its kind).
The word oozes from your lips, making it fun to chant; but to jar your memory, it means a word or phrase that imitates the sound when spoken aloud.
For instance, if you didn’t like Yoko Ono’s voice, her last name might become an onomatopoeia for you.
In short, its inclusion makes writing more fun and active for the reader, who can “hear” parts of the story.
And for the record, yes, I can still hear that smooch from many years ago. 😉
