Lady Rougepen Says: Contronyms Are Cool



What is a contronym? It’s a word with 2 contradictory meanings. Examples:

Bolt –  to secure, lock up/to rapidly flee.

Bound – headed towards a destination/restrained with ropes or wraps.

Dust – to add fine particles with a brush or puff (to dust yourself with talcum powder)/to remove them with a feather duster.

Fast – quick (Jeff runs so fast)/or to hold on to, as in “steadfast.”

Left – to stay (as in left back or behind)/or depart.

Weather – to tolerate (weather the storm)/or to wear down (a weathered bench)


I’m pleased to announce the release of my 8th book, Skoll’s Diary.

Africans and African Americans left Earth in 1900, and went to another planet in The Milky Way to escape mistreatment…

It’s now the year 3005 on that terraformed planet. We get a peek into the life of a bright and sensitive teenaged boy, Skoll, through his journal. He loves his world, but is curious about life on Earth. Then suddenly, an epic event casts him in the middle of a difficult decision.  The fate of the planet’s community is in his hands.

Get the book here. I’d appreciate your leaving a review if you read it. Thanks in advance!
