Word of the Week: bloviate

Yes, yes, yes, I know…I’m late with this post. But here’s the good news–I’ve written the rough draft of 53 pages of my book. At least I think that’s good news.

Last week’s WOW was agon. Merriam-Webster says that agon means the dramatic conflict between the chief characters in a literary work. The DD was right on target with her guess that it had to do with fighting!

This week’s WOW is bloviate. Here are my guesses for it:

bloviate (ˈblō-vē-ˌāt) 1. what happens to your insides when you realize you’ve just blown it 2. a former Soviet 3. inflating something, preferably not your ego

What’s your guess for bloviate? Comment below to see if you are right next week!
