The word nothing is on page 986 in The Random House Dictionary of the English Language; The Unabridged edition. The dictionary was published in New York by Random House in 1967. Jess Stein was the Editor in Chief and Laurence Urdang was the Managing Editor.
The word nothing comes after the word noteworthy, and before the word nothingness, which means the state of being nothing.
Today I am in the state of nothing. I am nothingness; I have nothing to say. I am not noteworthy. My words are not worthy of attention.
There are no words in my head today.
I have no words to write. I can not see past the dishes on the kitchen counter. I can not see past the mess in the basement. Today I want to sit in the bathtub all day. I want to sit and not think. I want to close my eyes and sleep.
I want to float.
I don’t want to think about the dishes. I don’t want to think about the mess in the basement. I don’t want to think about writing.
I have no words today.
I have nothing to say.
