Words

I believe that in the past two days I've coined two different, perfectly viable words. The first is one that I'm sure has probably already been coined, but I've had surprisingly little luck in finding it. Metaesthetics is my new word, and I'm sure you can guess its meaning. In fact, I plan to post more on it in the coming week. A Google search reveals a few articles that reference an essay with a title of that name which is no longer available on the internet.

My other new word is desolance, a noun form of the adjective desolate. It is essentially the same word as desolateness, but it makes more sense.

Can anyone find any instance of either of these words? Am I the new Shakespeare?
