When gusto is followed by for it means relish or liking. Patsy has gusto for cake. It is also an old term for a form of artistic execution.
If you write sci-fi, horror or fantasy stories with gusto, you may be interested in this short story competition – you have up to 17,000 words to play with. As usual for those I feature on this blog, it's free to enter and there's a prize. In this case $1,000 for first place (then $750 and $500).

Now that one's right up my alley!
Thanks for the definition. I thought "gusto" was Italian for a sudden, strong burst of wind.
Yep, consider your post shared.
Not a word I use too much, but I'll try to work it into my vocabulary:)
I hope you'll have a go then, Alex.
It needs the right sort of context, Mark.
Great word. I like to think I live my life with gusto! :)

I do like that word, Patsy. The comp sounds interesting!
Gusto, not heard that word for a while. But sadly my gusto has got up and gone for the moment. ;)
Living life with gusto sounds excellent, Susan!
It's a good word isn't it, Rosemary – I think it has gusto itself.
I hope it comes back soon, Carol.
