Daily prompt

Set a timer for ten minutes. Open a new post. Start the timer, and start writing. When the timer goes off, publish.

  1. It would take me 10 minutes to figure out where there is a timer in this house, then how to set it. You would think with all the clocks built into all the appliances here, one of them would have a simple timer…

        1. Pseu

          there, you’ve taught me something.

          I’ve just been over to look up ‘excoriate’ as I’ve never known it used in that way.

          In nursing we describe skin as excoriated when it has a broken / grazed appearance. “Damage or remove part of the surface of (the skin).”

          So know I know it can also be used to mean to “Censure or criticize severely.”

  2. I’m impressed, Al. Just coming up with that title must have taken a good chuck of your time. When the clock is ticking like that, the creative juices turn to Popsicles. Or is it just the sub-zero temps we’ve had up here in the North? 😉

    1. Thanks, Lorna. I agree that the title was very clever and well thought out. It was rather painstaking; I consulted several dictionaries, thesauruses (the word kind – not the dinosaur kind) and rewrote it several times. I knew of all my readers that you alone would appreciate all that went into it. Here’s a preview of my next title….”Today’s blog”. Mums the word.

        1. Thanks. Is there a Pulitzer for titles? I can only dream.

          P.S. I’m over 1/3 through the memoir (got distracted for a while). This is great Lorna. The description of the stuffing of the comforter and the feathers flying had me in tears! I promise when I finish, whenever that is, I will write a review for you. For now, I want to savor each reading session.

            1. Considering that the vast majority of men are scum (and most of them proud of it), I think you’re being a little hard on yourself. Thank God for Phil to renew your faith in our gender.

    1. This is what the Daily Prompt suggested as a topic today. It was tailor made for those of us with chronic writer’s bloc. Of course, I could have posted the same thing if they had given me a couple of hours.

      1. Where is the Daily Prompt? You know, I don’t know anything about WordPress. I do my thing, visit a select band of lovely blogging friends, and call it a day.

        I was just surfing around trying to find a homepage with Daily Prompts and such, but all I could find was WordPress.com, which seems to be the FP page without any general info at all, or a very generic WordPress.org page which is about businesses and corporate development.

        1. Actually, I might have mislead you. It’s officially called the Daily Post and you can subscribe here: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/. But someone like you, I daresay, will never, ever need it. You are way above the mundane and inane suggestions that come from these folks. Case in point, this post of mine.

Your turn to write, but please don't be wittier than me. My ego is quite fragile.
