Word of the Day: Youthquake

Word of the Day: Youthquake

What I think it means: This is another weird one. I have no idea what it’s supposed to mean unless you take the two separate words mashed together at face value that it refers to a riot of youths, or some sort of youth disruption.

What it actually means: A shift in cultural norms influenced by the values, tastes, and mores of young people. Hunh. Well, I can see how it would equate to that. Though, I feel like a quake doesn’t quite equate to something as gradual as a shift.


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.
