Huh? What's an Interjection? Ah-ha, that's it!

Huh? What's an Interjection?


An interjection is generally a word or a short phrase that is not grammatically connected to a sentence. Many interjections stand alone as a sentence.

Interjections are extremely important to realistic dialogue. Think about how often you use them in your everyday speech. Hmm, I don't know, like always. Yup! That's right...always. To create believable characters you need to include interjections. I used many interjections in Culture Shock, my debut series, but could never figure out how to correctly spell them. So here I included a list of interjections and the way to spell them correctly for writers or curious readers.

Ah-ha
blah
darn
eh
eek
geesh
geez
gosh
ha
ha-ha
Hmm
Huh
humph
Oh
Oh dear
Oh my gosh
oops
ow
phew
Seriously
shh
uh
uh-huh
uh-oh
ugh
um
Well
wow
Yeah
Yes
yikes
yippee
yuck
yup



CULTURE SHOCK is a witty tale of mystery and romance with a large helping of southern hospitality.

Macy Holmes is a seventeen-year-old socially-isolated introvert since her best friend's death a year ago. When her family decides to move from Manhattan to the quaint country town of Bougainvillea, Florida, Macy finds she's in a completely different world. Macy is no longer the outsider hiding behind designer clothes when she is sought out by three strange students, one of whom she is particularly interested in. The more time she spends with Chad the more things don't add up. When his true identity is finally revealed, Macy is pulled into a supernatural society with its saturation of inhabitants residing in Bougainvillea.

You would think she has enough on her plate, but no, then her dreams become infiltrated by an external magical force, Macy and her band of supernatural misfits must find the culprit behind the magic-induced nightmares. They must dodge zombie assassins, shifty shape-shifters and high school bullies in order to stop this perpetrator before Macy, her friends or her parents pay the ultimate price. Especially when Macy has the sneaking suspicion that these dreams are reality...
