The word you like most to write?

    The word you like most to write?

    Without realizing may be you repeat the word in your writing very much as you like it most. What is for you?
    I think its 'sure' for me. I like this word to write.

    Well Hubpages does not like short answers so I will rattle on until it seems sufficient, I like the word ALBEIT, has a charm about as well as a way of opening another route.

    This is a great question but it is very difficult to answer definitively.

    I have so many words I love to write and I keep them all in my Word Chest on the shelf so that I can take them down and admire them now and again and sometimes I show them to visitors who are all agog at my favorite  words, wishing they owned my Word Chest and sometimes offering big bucks to buy it from me, but I will never sell.

    Naturally I cannot tell you what is in my Word Chest because then you would come to my house and under the guise of wanting to see them you just might be overcome by the desire to possess my words, and pull out a Colt .44 and shoot me in the foot, so that you could escape with my Word Chest. Then you would be a hunted woman, 'Dghbrh'  and soon be 'on the lamb' running fast enough to stay ahead of the law but sooner or later they would catch up with you and return my Word Chest to me, as I lay wounded (not critically) in the hospital awaiting the return of my precious 'nominatives'. 

    So you see, it would be better off I did not answer this question.  As much as I would love to.

    And don't come creeping over to my house in the middle of the night looking for my Word Chest because I have it guarded by a 3-headed dog who is a light sleeper.  You wouldn't want to wake him up or you will be there for days being forced to listen to his endless supply of useless trivial facts that he prides himself on knowing. 

    He has his own set of favourite words you might say. smile

      Ah! So "word" and "chest" are your favorite words to write, based on this testimony. What would Freud say about "chest," I wonder? I'll consider that awhile...

    I have to repeat certain words in my writing, having started my fourth book and being the author of 221 Hub-pages. I try to vary the words used, to avoid repetition, but in English there are inevitably certain words that crop up, like 'it', 'and', 'yet' and not forgetting the old favourite 'then'. I'd have to get someone's help to analyse the most used word on my laptop. There are likely to be some words that might surprise readers - not rude ones, but words you only see in history text books or period novels.

    It seems as though I am stuck on using the word "however." I am not sure why I use it so much. I guess sub-consciously I use it because it is my favorite word and I am always contradicting myself in real-life anyway. I don't find it a problem however, because I usually use it in the right context.
    However I use the word, I use it probably too much. Oh Well, at least it's easy to spell.

    I like to write the word Klamokaptica. I use Klamokaptica as often as I can, because klamokaptica has such a nice sound to it.

    I just love the way klamokaptica rolls off the tongue, don't you? Just say it a few times. Klamokaptica, klamokaptica, klamokaptica. I wish I was the one to come up with klamokaptica. Oh well, at least I can write and say klamokaptica as often as I like.

    What an interesting question.

    The word I most like to write is "history." When I use that word, it usually means I am writing something in which I am very interested. My least used word that I would love to write more is "antidisestablishmentarianism" - I never get the chance to use it, but wouldn't that be grand?

    I don't think I have a favorite word, but I do have one I keep attacking as a challenge: "maintenance." I have had the worst time spelling it correctly for years; I've always messed up the "e"'s and "a"'s. So every time I type it, I think "Okay, let's see if I can get it right this time." When the wavy red spell check line doesn't show up: success!

    That's an interesting question----I will have to think --it may be one or two words written  together----may be, ' In fact' , ' have patience', 'be cool', ' be positive' , 'do'nt worry' , ' it's a part of life' etc.

    Never really thought of this question, I just write.  Looking back at my hubs, I use the word "fitness" a lot.  I guess this is because I write almost all of my hubs about something fitness related.  This is my niche and it is what I am most knowledgeable about. Good question ;-)

    It depends on the type of article that I am doing.  With hubs, describing processes, both "next" and "then" are unavoidable.

    With hubs about complex topics, I believe I use "although" as a qualifier often to explain exceptions.  I like complex topics, although sometimes I pick up topics that bore me to tears.

    The word I like most to write and write about is "love". Because there is no story that is not in some way related to love or the lack thereof. And it can lead to so many possibilities in writing. So, until I have exhausted these possibilities, I will stick to my "love" stories...
