Sassy: lively, bold, and full of spirit; cheeky
Today’s 365 Daily Challenge word has a few meanings or purposes. Since most people reading the blog have probably not met me, spoke to me on the phone, or seen a video of me, you wouldn’t fully know my personality. While I think it comes clear in my writing style, the expressions or words I use, or the banter between various other bloggers, it’s quite different to see it in person. I tend to be sassy in an offbeat way if I am very comfortable around the person, or if I’ve known them for a long enough time. Sassy in terms of truly being witty, sarcastic and silly. I often roll my eyes, pick on you (in a fun way, never mean), or make various noises or expressions in response to words in our conversation. It’s part of my ‘charm’ in the sense I can be very playful when I’m not being a serious stick-in-the-mud! I love the word sassy for this reason, as it’s a pretty accurate description of how I can act sometimes. A blogger I’d never met in person (though chatted on the phone for almost a year) recently visited me and I’m sure she can attest to it! I’ll just stop there to see what she says in response!
Two key things to know today about the word:
- W likes to joke with me when I do this by saying ‘Stop your sass mouth’ as an ode to a certain book and movie we both like. [I guess that’s putting me in my place!]
- I included a line in my next book that has a character who says something very similar. The person saying it, Janet Graeme, is not a very nice character… so revenge is sweet, eh? [I guess that’s putting someone else in their place!]
- A friend of mine runs a fantastic literary blog which you must check out — tons of books, author interviews, contests all over every social media site possible SassyBrit or Alternative-Read (check out the link). She’s running a contest thru March 25th to pick a book to read & review with her followers. Watching Glass Shatter (my debut) is one of the five books in the poll. You can vote to help me take first place so she reads the books and it gets more marketing and advertising — it could help me find new readers, followers or fans. The Goodreads Poll link is below and all you have to do is vote in the poll. Thanks in advance!
About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”
I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.
The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.
Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post.
