A to Z Blogger Challenge: Letter I

I love the letter I because it's so INCONSPICUOUS. It's like the underdog in a basketball tournament (yes, I still have the UK win on my brain:). So many other letters have fantastic words like T and S or R even. But I?

Yes I!

I words sneak up on you and blow you away with their awesomeness. I love coming up with a good I word when I'm writing.

Here are a few of my favorite:

Irrevocable-Not able to be changed, reversed, or recovered; final

Iridescent- adjective 1. displaying a play of lustrous colors like those of the rainbow.
noun 2. an iridescent cloth, material, or other substance: new fall dresses of imported iridescents.
Idol- 1. a. An image used as an object of worship.
b. A false god.
2. One that is adored, often blindly or excessively.
3. Something visible but without substance.

Ignacious-possessing qualities usually attributed to a reptilian creature known as an iguana; often applied to human beings resembling such creatures.

Irrefutable- Impossible to refute or disprove; incontrovertible

What are some of your favorite I words?

Kyra Lennon said...

Inspiration and imagination are my favourites!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Funny, I always think of ignacious as a name. lol

Jaye Robin Brown said...

Iguana came to my mind. Not because I have one or even like them. It's just a funny word. How about idealism? Or idea?

Unknown said...

Iridescent is a beautiful word! How about irresistible! I know a few who are LOL

Nick Wilford said...

All great words, indubitably. :)

I think I'm going to have to sneak ignacious into my WIP. I love it!

Brinda said...

Ignominious...can't say it. My tongue won't cooperate.

Angela Brown said...

I love the word imagination but there is something poetic about the word illuminous.

Cassie Mae said...

Idiom. :)

Teresa Cypher said...

Idiosyncratic, and idiot, lol. Indiscriminate, insatiable, irreverent, indispensable...

Wow, this A to Z challenge is odd. I think of all these cool words to blog...AFTER I have already blogged the respective letter :-)

Great post. Sometimes just words...a simple list of words is a nice departure.

Have a wonderful Wednesday :-)

Pat Carroll Marcantel said...

You are so creative I'm speechless!

Christa Desir said...

Awesome "i" words and yes, I also like "inconspicuous" but probably because I am anything but that:)

Stephanie said...

Certainly idiot is one. It's just fun to say, for some reason. Idle is a great word. And my niece's name, Isabella.

Juliana L. Brandt said...

It's funny how certain words don't pop out at you, but it's true, I words are awesome!
