Whenever I use my spell check, I almost always have a made up word or two in my writing. I can’t help but to write the way my brain thinks. And since I write for kids, my brain doesn’t think on a very adult level sometimes.
Do you ever make up words for your manuscript? If so, what genre do you write for? If you’re a stickler for dictionary words, does finding a made-up word bother you when reading? What are some of your favorite fake words?
