Word of the day: Protagonist
A word of the day is a good exercise. There are several websites that offer one, I prefer wordthink.
For one, the obvious reason, it’s always good for a writer to increase his vocabulary. One thing I like about wordthink is you can go back and look at previous words.
The second reason, at least for me, is it’s a bit of an ego boost when you run into good words you already know. Like, ‘Hey, that’s a good word and I already know how to use it.’
