Word of the Day Challenge


The Word of the Day is HEURISTIC.  (Brought to you courtesy of Jim.  He used it in some poetry recently.  I’d never heard the term, and thought it made a great W.O.D.).

DEFINITION: A heuristic is a rule or method that helps you solve problems faster than you would if you did all the computing. It sounds fancy, but you might know a heuristic as a “rule of thumb.”.

Derived from a Greek word that means “to discover,” heuristic describes a rule or a method that comes from experience and helps you think through things, like the process of elimination, or the process of trial and error. 

Write a poem, story or anecdote inspired by this word.
