Fandango’s One Word Challenge (19 May 2020)

Prompt image for the Fandango One Word Challenge prompt

I’ve quite got into Fandango’s One Word challenge prompts since lockdown. My top priority is to keep my post short – just because anybody reading through the comments/pingbacks on his prompt will likely have a couple of dozen posts to read through. When I look through the pingbacks, it is normally the last thing I do before I shut down each night, so my eyelids are heavy and I’ll probably just skip the adventure altogether if I’m faced with a 15-minute post.

Second, I like to mix it up a bit, I don’t want to post the same thing day after day. Beyond that, it’s nice to post something provocative, if I can. Something which, although short, might trigger some deeper thought process in the reader.

As regards the actual content, I’m not really fussed. Usually it will be a quotation, or a song, or a photo, something that might be a two-second read, although it will normally take an hour or two to research and write. Sometimes that research might just be background thinking until I settle on some idea, other times it might be looking actively through web sites until I find the right image or quote.

    1. Absolutely. It’s great fun at the end of each day to see how we have all come up with different angles on the same thing. Good for him for reading people’s responses, too – if you’re gonna take on a prompt, you’re setting yourself up for a lot of reading!
