Welcome to 2017! I hope everyone had a lovely time celebrating the New Year:) Now it’s back to the grind. Back to that writing that you probably set aside during the holidays. I know I did, but I’m back at it. Hard at work, trying to write every day. And I’m here to help you get back to it as well!
♥ Writing exercise time. ♥
My four year old dresses herself everyday, and I’m so proud of her. Although, sometimes she mismatches. It doesn’t matter. I always compliment her and tell her she’s beautiful, because she is. Okay, maybe I’m biased. *wink* But, seriously, she’s beautiful! Anyhoos, that brings me to the writing exercise today. Do you ever confuse the words compliment and complement? Do you know the difference between the two? Did I just confuse you writing them side by side? hahaha
Now, when I Googled (Yay for Google!) to give you a proper definition for each word, there are several ways you can use both words, as a noun and as a verb. I’ll give you one definition for each.
(noun) a polite expression of praise or admiration.
(verb) politely congratulate or praise (someone) for something.
(noun) a thing that completes or brings to perfection.
(verb) add to (something) in a way that enhances or improves it; make perfect.
Give me a sentence or two using one (or both, if you’re daring enough) of the words.
“That dress makes you look fa…bulous.”
She cocked a brow. “Did you just try to hide an insult with a compliment?”
He shook his head slowly. “Never.”
“The wall would complement with your face nicely.”
“You know you love me. Half-assed compliments and all.”
*snickers* Okay, my example was nowhere near one or two sentences. And a little harsh, but you get the gist. Write away! Your turn.
How many words did you write? 20? 30? 100? Awesome! One word written is better than none.
💗 Much love,
