So, a bit of word news from the Brit's today....did you know that the Oxford English Dictionary picks a word of the year every year? Yep. Now ya know. So, boil your water, steep your tea and start guessing what the word of the year is for 2012.
Well, first off, it's not YOLO (you only live once).
The word....drum roll............OMNISHAMBLES:
Oxford University Press defines the word as a situation that has been mismanaged in every way with a long string of blunders and miscalculations.
So, I can't wait to twist my plot into omnishambles, or see the word in a novel.

Do you ever read a new book and have to look up words new to your vocabulary?
