Well, what I thought discrete meant was tactful, unobtrusive, not making a big hoo-ha. And that's exactly what Suzy was when she pointed out I was wrong. Discreet is the word I wanted (so I had the right letters, just not in the right order)
Discrete is a real word, but it means individually distinct or separate. Discrete and discreet are discreetly different words! Did you know that?
It might pay not to be overly discreet if you have a go at this novel writing competition. The prize is a publishing contract, editorial guidance and marketing support. I'm very tempted to give it a try.
The picture is of the buttonhole my uncle wore at my wedding (I asked everyone to wear something purple) Pretty discrete, I reckon.
Want to tell me about a time you've been indiscreet?
