Got any friends in publishing? I would be so down.
Actually, you gave me an idea! I could self-publish this thing, you know. At some point in the future, you might be able to buy Otherwordly: the book. I could include etymology and maybe a sample sentence along with the definition, something simple like that… Anyways, thank you! I take that as a compliment.
I’m a little confused about your question. Do you mean writing a book about words, some of which you found from my blog? (e.g. Weird Words You Will Definitely Never, Ever Use)In which case yes, please! It might seem a bit silly to ask for credit for using “my” words, since words don’t really belong to anyone (and that’s the nice thing about them), but I did take time to dig them up and put them all together.
Or do you mean writing a book—that is, prose—that contains sentences that contain words you found from my blog? In which case, it’s up to you. Like I said, words don’t belong to anyone.
Please let me know what’s happening with your book, though! I heartily approve of writing books, whether they’re about words or something else. And please don’t hesitate to contact me again (non-anonymously would be easier, though!) if you’ve got any other questions or anything.
