[CONTEST] Spring Forth, Words! 2022

Spring Forth, Words! 2022


Nature is waking up again! (Unless you're in the southern hemisphere, in which case, sorry!) You should wake up too! Get writing! SoSuWriMo burn-out should be past! Below is a list of 30 words we think are very cool. Your task is to use them in sentences! Choose a challenge that best fits your hectic life!

How it Works



Straight A Student


Use each daily word in a post that day and win a cute little icon and a snazzy custom title!

Notes:
  • The Word of the Day should be used on that day.
  • Exception: the first word can be used on either April 1st or April 2nd and still count as "day of."
  • There are no extra points for using a word multiple times or in multiple posts.
  • Unlike its evil cousin Wordtober, plurals and variations on a root word ARE accepted -- so you can use "superstitious" instead of "superstition."


Ace the Finals


Use each daily word by the end of that week for a cute little icon!

Notes:
  • For the purposes of this challenge, the week ends on Saturday.
  • Words 1-9 are due end of the day April 9th
  • Words 10-16 are due end of the day April 16th
  • Words 17-23 are due end of the day April 23rd
  • Words 24-30 are due end of the day April 30th
  • Each post can only have one word that "counts."
  • That means if you have a single post and happen to include 5 words on the list, only one of those words can count for that post.

Passing Score


Use each daily word by the end of the month for a snazzy new custom title!

Notes:
  • Each post can only have one word that "counts."
  • That means if you have a single post and happen to include 5 words on the list, only one of those words can count for that post.
  • That means you need a minimum of 30 posts this month!

Icon and title prizes will be awarded to OOC accounts. If you have a cute icon from last year, your icon will be upgraded!


APRIL WORD LIST

Participate!


  1. Copy and paste the word list in a reply to this thread.
  2. Please clearly indicate which challenge you're participating in! (Yes, you can edit/change it later.)
  3. As the month progresses, update your post to link each word to the post that contains it.
  4. Please clearly indicate the word used in your post either by bolding it or underlining it.
  5. Remember, all 'Souls events and contests operate on EASTERN (currently, Daylight) TIME.

Overachievers are welcome to link some kind of fancy spreadsheet concoction, but this is certainly not required!

Bonus!


Not enough word nerd fun for you? There's always our traditional and perpetually ongoing Word of the Day, where you can use the Word of the Day from either (or both!) Merriam-Webster or Dictionary.com.

Using traditional Word of the Days this month will count for double! And remember, you can use those words in multiple posts in a day for even more points, but you do need to use them on that day!

It's fine to use a standard WotD word in the same post as an April Word, but each word can still only count once per post. (E.g. It's fine to use the April Word, the M-W WotD, and the Dictionary.com WotD in a single post. This will count for the Spring Forth! challenge and net you 4 WotD points (2 each for the M-W word and the Dictionary.com word).)
