Independent Learning Log

Source: Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin

What I did: To improve my writing and vocabulary, I decided to read a novel. I looked up the words I did not understand and took note of how the author wrote his chapters to create suspense in different parts of the story.

What I learned:
susurration - whispering, murmuring, or rustling
desultory - lacking a plan, purpose or action
dessicate - remove the moisture from something
roil - move in a turbulent, swirling manner

Now that I have learned these new words, I will use them when writing compositions.
