Imprecation (noun)
[im-pri-key-shuh-n]

“This is used to describe when you're swearing at someone wishing them ill or even wanting them to die. So you might say: ‘The man yelled vicious imprecations at the mugger who tried to steal his car.’”

To hear Valerie and Allison chat more about this and more on the world of writing, blogging and publishing, check out this week's podcast episode.
