Vocabulary

When I read I am a plodder. I can't just gloss over a word I don't know. I've even found that there are a lot of words that I thought I knew but really had no idea about when I took a close look at them. I just cannot go on to the next sentence unless I'm positive that I know all the words from the one prior and understand why the writer placed them there. I had to find a system to organize new words and make them mine. 

My constant companion when I am reading is my smartphone. When I come across a word I don't know, or one that I am not one hundred percent sure I own, I will look it up in an online dictionary before I continue on. Then I'll put it on a list on my phone.


When I get a few spare moments I'll transfer all the words to a book and add the definition. I don't copy the dictionary exactly and I'll add notes about how it was used to help me remember it.


Thanks for reading for V day, we're almost done! Tell me your favorite word in the comments.
