Hwyl: (in Welsh use) a stirring feeling of emotional motivation and energy.


Here’s a word we caught this week. We thought we’d share hwyl with you as because we hope it describes the feeling you get after reading one of our books.

Here’s an example of it in use:

I just couldn’t put The Tall Owl by Colum Sanson-Regan down. When I finished it, I felt a real hwyl, and immediately began writing my own book.

What can you do with this word? Show us how you’d use this creatively in the comments below…
