[with object and infinitive]
Strongly encourage or urge (someone) to do something: I exhorted her to be a good child [with direct speech]: ‘Come on, you guys,’ exhorted Linda
Late Middle English: from Old French exhorter or Latin exhortari, from ex- 'thoroughly' + hortari 'encourage'.
I exhort all who read WotD to jump right in with a simple statement of some sort. Just write it. Click the Preview button if you must, but submit. Submit. Submit. Don't think too much about it. God knows I don't.
