WHAT ARE ZEN WORDS?

Zen Words are cool, easy to pronounce, one syllable words for the vocabulary minimalist. Zen Words pop! They offer snap and punch. Zen Words are little words with a big meaning.

Zen Words help you say more with less! Why use a three or four syllable word when a Zen Word will do? Zen Words are one syllable wonders that help you practice succinct syntax.

Zen words are:

  • EASY TO SAY
  • EASY TO USE
  • HELP YOU SOUND SMARTER THAN YOU ARE
  • GREAT FOR WRITERS and WORD GAME LOVERS
  • TASTY BRAIN FOOD

Here’s a fitting Zen Word for the New Year.

Cusp (kusp)n. A transitional point or time; a point that marks the beginning of a change.

On January 1, 2011, Dan felt he was on the cusp of something new and exciting in his personal life.

How would you use it in a sentence?

“Lyssa hovered on the cusp, unsure. Regardless of which choice she made, her life was about to change, unalterably.”

Before the zodiac changed, Susan “used to be” a double-Aries born on the Taurus cusp. Now, she’s suffering an identity crisis.
Other than that, what a great resource for copywriters. Here’s Hemingway’s shortest story ever (so the story goes)
For sale.
Baby shoes.
Never worn.

Challenge your readers to write one of their own. Here’s mine:
For sale:
Wedding dress.
Worn thrice.
