A New Word: Vemödalen

vemoödalen – the fear that originality is no longer possible

I used to worry about this, and often I thought that I’d run out of original things to do. However, after 20 years of writing, I know that’s not true. Seeing TikTok or Youtube things my kids enjoy show me the tremendous creativity and originality that the world has to offer.

You might disagree, but I don’t find this to be a sorry for me and I embrace the amazing diverse, creative world we live in.
