New words*

* in the style of the Washington Post Style Invitational, where, in this case, one letter of a word is removed and replaced with another to create a new meaning:

Sacrilecious – the act of enjoying, against the will of its intent, the taste of any item offered in religious ritual; eg the Eucharist.

Ediot – someone you entrust with your writing to make comments, corrections and suggestions but end up realising they’re not as clever as they think they are.

Riputation – what big business, politicans and celebrities don’t want to lose in New Zealand (apologies :)).

When I'm not writing I'm doing paid work in Communications or International Relations, being mum to two teenage boys, attempting to maintain a reasonable marriage, and constantly adjudicating the battle between my inner feminist and inner domestic goddess, goddammit.
