Word of the week (2)

Her hopes of publication dwindled with each rejection.

(Wondering what my Word of the Week is about? Click here for an explanation.)

right, it’s dwindle this time? So whereabouts in the story does this one appear? Or rather, which sentence?

I have just thought of something: how about finding the most outrageously erudite word and trying to build a sentence around it?

I already play my solitary alphabet game, but a word game might be fun too. I like word puzzles. Do you do cryptic crosswords?

Hi Friko, yes I enjoy word games like Scrabble and cryptic crosswords. (Many moons ago I invented some word puzzles for a children's magazine.)
I used 'dwindle' in a short story I'm entering in a competition but you won't find it on my blog - unless it wins!
