My new favorite word is 'lunar,' when not literally talking about the moon. Usually a desolate, barren, alien-feeling place, like an empty salt flat or a glacier surface or something. Every time I read it somewhere my brain squees and thinks 'that is so beautiful omg' and I read the sentence a bunch of times. I want to use it now that I'm writing again, but it also feels a little pretentious, and it's one of those words that might make other people go 'wtf that's not what lunar means' and interrupt the flow in a bad way etc.

I always get words or phrases stuck in my head like earworms without music, and can't remember if I made them up or found them. LAME because if I made them up I'd want to actually use them somewhere, and google isn't much help when it comes to the text of relatively obscure books. Luckily this is only one word and I'm almost certain the first time I noticed it was in something Cormac McCarthy wrote. I just don't remember what.
