Otherworldly Words: Trepidation

If you enter a situation with trepidation, you’re probably pretty scared.


“The constant, unidentifiable screech coming from the room as well as the utter darkness within compounded her trepidation.”

Trepidatious and trepidatiously are the adjective and adverb form, respectively.

Personally I love words like trepidation because they can accomplish in one word what otherwise could take several. I think every writer needs to have these words in his arsenal.

Do you have a favorite word you keep in your writing arsenal?
