The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out
Just to remind readers what I'm doing here, I'm reposting my earlier explanation. Here 'tis!
As a writer, my real tools are the words in my language. Fortunately, English has a ton--with more being added everyday. You can see where this is going, right? My favorite words from AtoZ. Okay, stop the sniggering. I'm not as creative as some, so give me a break, take a look and add your favorite word in your comment. I can always use more words.
How would you use this word in one of your stories, or would you? What's harrowing for you anyway? Do you feel more harrowed by reading the reports of real events in the real world, or by Stephen King's latest weird adventure in the land of fiction? Here's a film that gives me the true feeling of what a harrowing experience is. Ever seen The Deep? I only thought I'd see the opening of this video about the making of that film, but I had to watch it all. Incredibly harrowing.
