Word of the Day: Arduous

Word of the Day: Arduous

What I think it means: Well, I know this one, so it’s not going to be a shocking result. Arduous refers to difficult–strenuous would be a smashing synonym.

What it actually means: Demanding great effort or labor; difficult. I will say, this word is well worth putting in your arsenal, because arduous gets a lot of use. It’s not just a tough task, it’s an arduous one–the implication is more dramatic and therefore evokes more of a feeling.

I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
