Conflate

I read a lot. I'm rather proud of my vocabulary, despite my origins as a redneck mutt.

I came across the word conflate in a peer's crit. It sounds like a word I should know. Somehow missed it. But what a great word. I can't wait to use it. Conflate: To combine (two variant texts, for example) into one whole.

I see myself explaining why a paragraph needs to be broken up. "You conflate inconsistent threads." Oh, oh. Can't wait to use it.

Write every day.

Regards,
Mac
