This was not my first choice for "E".  I originally chose "enthusiasm", but I sat for a 1/2 hour with a blank computer screen.  I couldn't seem to organize my thoughts.  My writing kept wandering.  I think enthusiasm is a great word.  It evokes passion and eagerness, but today I hit a roadblock in the flowing prose department.  
My husband witnessed my struggle this morning and suggested "Eustreptospondylus" instead.  I resisted at first but no epiphany came.  

So E is for Eustreptospondylus, a T-Rex like dinosaur found in England.

Hopefully I will have more luck with the "F" word tomorrow.

I also want to thank Deirdra Coppel over at for awarding me with the "Inspiring Blog Award".  I am so honored to be included in her list. 



  1. haha ya i wish you luck too

  2. I think we'll all have luck with the F-word. Ha! That's the longest E word I've seen so far.

  3. Haven't heard of this one! A great E word!

  4. Clearly you weren't enthusiastic about enthusiasm. I have never heard of this particular e word!

  5. You slipped in a few E words plus coming up with one I have never heard and not sure I can pronounce. It was fun.

    Be careful with that F word.

    Still, I like your choice of word.

  7. Wow, tough word to pronounce. But it's a cool word.

  8. Awesome E word. Then again, I love dinosaurs.

  9. That's a great E word!! I changed my mind 3x before settling on E for Ernest...Hemingway.

  10. I still love dinosaurs after all these years. One of my first books as a kid was Know Your Dinosaurs. Thanks for the post!

  11. Such a crazy word. Love the post though mom!
