Inutile – Wordplay Wednesday™ 07/10/2019

Recycle. Reuse. Repurpose.  

Works with words, too. We’re headed into an infinitely more cerebral world, in which words and images dominate. Nothing is worse than a wasted brain or a squandered word …
INUTILE (in yōōtʹ’l) adj. – useless, unprofitable. [WW #224]

Unless it’s a perfectly good yacht! Oh, the agony … but I digress …

As writers, either casually or for profit, we can often slip into a creative rut. Do you find yourself using only a fraction of your extensive, brainy vocabulary? You may not even realize that your writing suffers from an inutile malady.

Just as with your body, it helps to flex and stretch your mental writing muscles. Don’t settle for mundane and inutile, when you have so much pizazz at your disposal!

Now, you see—there is a word I haven’t used for a while. It made me smile just to type “pizazz” into my document. What other words have I been squandering? How about you? Stuck in a rut? Recycle. Reuse. Repurpose … and revitalize your writing!
Word Challenge: INUTILE. Wake up your writing with panache as you slip inutile into your week of useFUL writing.

Learning knows no prejudices or boundaries, and it isn’t fattening! Expanding your mind is a no-cost, simple joy. Do you feel that way too? What’s your inspiration? Share your creative genius and Wordplay Wednesday comments below.
