作用(さよう)ACTION alternate mnemonic

Meaning…
This word looks like you’re making a check list with an old quill pen. You’re MAKING your list of TASKS. Once you MAKE a TASK, it’s time for ACTION! Without ACTION, there is no need to MAKE a TASK, for there would be no EFFECT.

Reading…
Once you MAKE a TASK, it’s time for ACTION. Put down that check list, say SAYO(u)nara, and go take ACTION. Have an EFFECT on the world.

Could backfire though if you put just さよ

Or:

左様なら (sa + you + nara)

According to jisho.com. So both spellings exist? But wow, the kanji version is probably super formal.

I just knocked this word back down to Apprentice and I’ve been doing WK for almost three years. I’ve decided that until I see it in the wild somewhere, it ain’t gonna stick for me. I’ll try this out, though!
