So first off, if you didn’t figure it out by the lack of word posts over the weekend, the Word of the Day feature is only a five day thing. I won’t be doing weekends just because WordPress is a quiet place for me on the weekend. So just Monday through Friday. Now onto the word.
Nefarious. I think of that word and one person/character comes to mind. Captain Hook. I love nefarious. It’s a blast to say.
ne·far·i·ous adjective \ni-ˈfer-ē-əs\
: evil or immoral
: flagrantly wicked or impious : evil
Ah, such a fun word to use for a villain. And the only reason I choose Captain Hook is because of Once Upon a Time. I’m sorry, but Captain Hook is a favorite villain of mine and nothing screams nefarious or dastardly (another fun word to use) like Colin O’donaghue’s Killian Jones/Captain Hook. Maybe because I love the term ‘flagrantly wicked or impious’. Doesn’t that sound like Captain Hook?
Okay, so people, your challenge today….. Use nefarious, or dastardly, or both! in a story or in your daily vernacular. I dare you. Come on, have a bit of some villain in you.

You are quite welcome, and I love your posts. I do not have villains as part of my usual repertoire for characters when I write, but your post makes me want to write a villain.
