Proseur: A pretend writer of prose.
Proseur is a word mash-up between the word prose: “written or spoken language in its ordinary form without metrical structure.” (Many thanks to the Googles.)
And poseur: “A person who acts in a affected manner in order to impress others.” (Thank you Misters Merriam & Webster.)
And thus, a proseur is a person who affects a writerly manner in order to impress others with non-existent prose.
And this week my prose meandered off to another venue. Whoa, a contest! For me, that work, that wandering prose is now doing it’s own limbo. Meanwhile, I’m a proseur, baby! <grin>
And Happy April Fools Day! May all your fools be happy. <\grin>
(Hat Tip: Mr. Viva. Thank you.)
