That Word: Number 2

That Word is a segment where I will be posting a new word each week. They are words that I’ve newly discovered or words I’ve known but wanted to be more thorough in knowing the meaning. This could be for you writer’s like myself looking carefully into the words we use or it could be for those people who are just interested in all kinds of different words. No matter which one you are, this post is for you. This week’s word is…

Serendipity

An Example Sentence

“Serendipity,” He said as he glanced at the pile of artefacts.

It appeared serendipity was following him.

My Thoughts

Serendipity is a word I kind of like the sound of saying. It sounds kind of cool. I don’t think it’s necessarily a word that would be used often, but it definitely would be a nice one to fit into my writing. I can imagine this one particular character of mine saying it.
