for a strong, fast pick-me-up
Do you like new words people make up? Often they combine or tweak existing words to describe something new.
This post was inspired by a message that made me laugh – from a mother who jokingly shared how she dreamed of her daughter becoming an international model and her (the mother) escaping an office job to become a mum/mom-manager – a momager.
Because it said mom – rather than mum, I’m guessing she borrowed an American expression. Still, it was the first time I’d heard the expression and it make me chuckle. Maybe, she made it up.
Another new word I love is Typochondriac – to describe someone who checks their works again and again and again – because they fear sending out a typo.
Love that clever new word. I’m sure I’ll use it in sessions where I help people reduce writing mistakes and yet send out messages promptly.
If you love new words please share in the comment section any new ones you learn of.
Also, please start thinking of a new word to describe clever new words.
Neologism is, I believe the technical term – but I’m sure we can go better in creating a more clever new word to describe new words!

These days, lots of people and organisations need help with how to COPE with too much work, too much information, too many meetings, delivering difficult news, business writing, effective e-mail, e-mail overload, cross-cultural communication, better social media engagement etc. I like to help people COPE.
