Introducing the Nerd Word of the Day

In what can only be categorized as an act of insane hubris, I've decided that the Written Weird is going to in fact host a follow-up to my late, lamented Geek Trivia column called the Nerd Word of the Day. It will be a small hybird of my previous trivia work and my glossary of science fiction words.

My initial goal is to make these entries brief, timely, snarky--and to do them every weekday. Whether I can pull that off remains to be seen, but if ever I was to do a sequel to Geek Trivia, this would be it. It should start tomorrow, so stay tuned.

  1. Love it! Great idea. I'm betting it's going to be well nigh impossible to keep one a day going (even with weekdays only) for more than a month or so though ... but don't let a couple missed days keep you from keeping it going! :)

  2. Glad to see it get started. I think every day is a pretty big commitment, though. Maybe scale it back to once per week if you hit any obstacles to the daily postings...
