OK my fellow book addicts, great news to share. Yesterday I submitted my finished manuscript, The Beginning, to my publisher. Its going to the editor today. I'm hoping that it may be out in time for Christmas, if not it'll be January.
 
I saw a fun quizz on the internet the other day, of course it caught my attention as it was word play related. It really made me stop and think as I had never before heard some of the words. Do you know the meaning of the following words?

8/ Abusion                                           a. Misuse; outrage;deception

Knowing the meaning of words that are not commonly used is a great skill to have. It can be useful in times like this where in there is a sudden quiz bee. Quiz bees are indeed fun and challenging. I have been joining quiz bee since I was in kindergarten. I love challenging myself to learn more than what I should. It is really helpful for me because it helps me be more knowledgeable while having fun at the same time.
