Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Starting this week off on a great note is a word which I pepper throughout my word quite liberally because it makes me chuckle every time that I see it. If you’re not familiar with this one then I urge you to use it all the time as it has been neglected for the past 50 years.

 

cocksure

adj . confident in an excessive or arrogant way.

This word has its origins in Britain and was very popular up until the year 1960 where it seemed to suddenly fall out of use. Well here’s your chance to bring it back. See if you can drop it in your writing today and tweet us @HowToBeAWriter to be in with a chance of winning a brand new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 😀
