Daily Prompt: Being a Lexicographer!

Daily Prompt: Create a new word and explain its meaning and etymology.

Nexciteablism – the feeling of nervousness when you should be excited.

Example in a sentence – “Oh, I feel all nexciteable!”

Derived fromNe (extracted from Nervous) xcite (extracted from Excited) and ablism (because it ends the word nicely)

Word Origin – When waiting to enter a concert venue, I often get a nervous feeling in my stomach but I can never understand why – I should be feeling excited! Instead of having to explain this to friends, we should just be able to say we feel nexciteable!
