Why would you? You're probably the only person to use that word in the last hundred years. When your book comes out, you will practically own it. :)

I hereby predict that the word "smote" will consequently make its way back into common usage. I hear the NYT is already on the phone with their beat writers.  8) (And if not the NYT, then at least a whole bunch of indie author's books)

p.s. Methinks Krista will be pleased.

Careful. Smote and smite are like those those little red peppers in Chinese food. Too many and it gives you the hiccups... 8)

Woohoo for diverse word choices! I think I've used it in dialog.  ;D  I don't know. I forget what I've written after I write it.
