Susie’s well-deserved vacation starts next week. Her plans are falling apart.
Her companion can’t go and her company canceled her plans. The only way she’s going on this vacation is to quit…Tempting!
The well-read woman had an extensive vocabulary. (7 words)
The woman was well read and had an extensive vocabulary. (10 words)
Your challenge this weekend is to give us 33 words about anything you want. Your piece must include at least one hyphenated compound modifier. Remember that the hyphen will join your two words together to create one, so you will have a bit more wiggle room with your word count and language. You are free to use more than one hyphenated modifier in your post, but we ask that you be careful not to sacrifice readability in the process.
(Note: it’s incredibly likely that all of our various word counters will deal with hyphenated words differently. Because it’s only 33 words, we’ll count using our eyeballs instead of our machines, counting each hyphenated modifier as one word. We encourage you to do so as well.)
