Vemödalen: The fear that everything has already been done: https://thunderdome.cc/?week=353

This neologism comes to us by way of John Koenig’s The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, which is our subject for the week. Pick one of the (non-introduction) videos from This playlist (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkoML0_FiV4&list=PLCXinA-ukN0rxft8oNal97bH3FfRzSZXZ), and write something inspired by or evoking the emotion described. Do not be too literal or duplicative of the video, though. (We’re sticking to just the ones with videos again for this week, not the ones only defined in the dictionary website)

If you wrote in week 353, you should choose a different word this time.

The first person to select each word gets 1500 words. The second gets 1400, the third 1300, and so on. This reduction only applies to cases where people are duplicating a word, to be clear

All the no’s: poetry, erotica, fanfic, raw screeds and primal screams, spreadsheets,gdoc links in general

Losses/negative mentions are possible but not inevitable this week.
