The SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS weekly column is a place at Shannon Muir’s author website open to interviews and guest posts from other authors. One thing Shannon firmly believes in for readers not only to learn about new books available, but about those who craft the tales behind them. As its name implies, SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS weekly column features writers from all genres of fiction who want their potential audience to get to know them, and their works, better – and occasionally may offer features from Shannon herself that support readers to discover words.
DISCOVER WORDS… REFLECTIONS is a monthly blog series that focuses on readers and the discovery of words. All blog posts written by Shannon Muir. This month she shares her thoughts on new words for a new year.
This column rings in a new year, and new opportunities to learn and use new words.
Over the coming months, we’ll look at a word and a synonym (or two or three…) depending on the month of the year and look at what the subtle differences mean. Synonyms suggested will try to be a single word whenever possible.
This month, consider a synonym for new – contemporary.
Consider the differences in application between new and contemporary.
