Word of the Week: Schreibfaul
Enlarge image (© colourbox) Feeling lazy today? In particular - are you feeling too lazy to respond to e-mails, letters or anything else that requires writing? In that case, you are schreibfaul! So pick up your pen and change the status quo!
Schreibfaul comes from schreiben ("to write") and faul ("lazy"), and it is an adjective used to describe someone who is too lazy or disinterested in writing anything - especially when it comes to writing letters.
You may have a grandmother who's a fit old-fashioned and eagerly awaiting a letter from you. She checks her mailbox daily but it's always empty. And that's because you're schreibfaul! So don't be lazy - find a quiet spot and start writing.
