Day 5: What word do you like the feel of?

Like, in your mouth, as you roll it around on your tongue?

I like the word spatula. It’s so… satisfying to say.

And the word futtocks. Close enough to “buttocks” but with an indignant F on the front.

And, of course, I love a good lusty FUCK. So to speak.

How about you?

What words do you love to speak out loud? Is it the sound of them, the feel of them, the meaning? Or a combination of all three?

Set a timer for 5 minutes and see what falls out.

Happy writing!
