I blame the shortcut “tom” for not giving me enough chances to practice spelling this word. In formal writing this word is rarely used. Transitioning phrases that use this word will make the sentence boring. “Tomorrow, Sheila will go to the mall,” and other similar sentences will make your story seem juvenile. I usually use this in informal messages like text, chat, or fb where I am not obligated to spell out the whole word. I just simply say, “See you tom!”
I am not religious. I don’t go around saying “Jesus resurrected, I love this day!” I am not in the habit of writing about this topic. This event doesn’t happen often, so I don’t get to read about it in the news or something. Why would any normal person use this word anyway? You don’t say “Good morning everyone, looks like someone got resurrected.” A story would rarely end with “and then he resurrected.” Even Harry Potter, which had a resurrection scene, barely used the actual word.
I don’t have it yet, so it doesn’t exist in my vocabulary either.
