Fowc with fandango

Welcome to June 23, 2019 and to Fandangos One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). Its designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each days word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Todays word is dearth.

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.


There is a dearth of evidence, the police officer said. Leila looked at him with surprise. Really? I didnt think that was true, she said.

Well I’ll see what i can do, but I am not promising anything.

Leila sat down heavily on the couch. She was still in complete shock. She couldnt believe she’d been burgled and all of her valuables taken, and there was no finger prints, no evidence that someone had been in her house.

Thanks for coming over so quickly, she said to the police officer, who by then was getting ready to leave.

He put his note book and pen in his briefcase, and shut it.

I think you should call someone, he said, is there a family member or friend you can call?

I’ll call my sister, Leila said, she’ll know what to do.
