Fowc with fandango

http://fivedotoh.com/2019/06/23/fowc-with-fandango-dearth/

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.

3 things challenge!

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing! 😀

Today’s prompt: number, radish, Lisbon

I want to visit Lisbon, Sarah said. Why is that? asked suzi?

Story starter challenge, an old one from march

The prompt word for this story starter was, help! A good prompt word I thought!
So here goes here is my take on it!

Help! She screamed as she jumped up out of bed! Something had startled her. She had heard a noise.
What is it? Her mom said running in!
I don’t know! She was shaking now, and starting to cry.
Big tears rolled down her face, as her mom hugged her tight.
Your ok! Nothing can harm you! Its going to be ok!
She tried to soothe her little girl, but she was so fearful it was difficult to get her to calm.
I thought, I thought someone was breaking in to our house!
No, no no! No one was doing that her mom soothed!
Now come on, come downstairs with me and I will make you a mug of hot chocolate!
The little girls eyes lit up at that suggestion. She hugged her mom one final time and then got out of bed and followed her to the door.
Are you sure its ok? She peeked around the door.
Yes, sweetie her mom said, I’m sure. Now come on, lets go!

Weekend writing prompt, charlatan

He stood with his hands folded. What to do now? Everyone knew. Everyone had him figured out.
Or so he thought. They all knew what a charlatan he was. Now what would he do? How would he go on?
Just as he was contemplating what he should do and what he was going to say when he went back inside, a car rounded the bend, and smash! It was all over!

Story starter: 4-16-2019

Welcome to the new Story Starter Challenge!

Every day I will post a new sentence prompt. Use the provided sentence somewhere in your post. It can be a starting sentence, closing sentence, anything you choose. Read it and see where the sentence takes you.

Have Fun!

Todays prompt:

Sitting on the front porch.

mary and sean were sitting on the front porch drinking coffee, and putting the world to rights.
What a glorious day it is, said mary!
Yes, about time it warmed up, sean mused.
They had coffee almost every day, and they would sit and chat about all sorts of things, about their days, their lives, the news, anything that took their fancy!
Today Sean was happily listening to mary chattering on about her new kittens!
That was until…until the sky turned black, and clouds started to form…
Oh no, sean cried! There’s a storm acommin!
Quick, mary shrieked, lets get inside!
So leaving all talk of cats aside, they rushed indoors, and just in time!
It began to bucket down just then!

Story starter…

Today’s sentence: “Can I have a word with you?”

Can I have a word with you, sarah? The teacher said very matter of factly. But sarah knew it was trouble, she was going to be in serious trouble.
She had that feeling, the feeling of dread, as she walked to her teachers desk.
Yes? Miss? She tentatively said?
Sit down, sarah…her teacher said.
Sarah sat down heavily and waited, she waited, and waited some more.
Finally her teacher opened her desk drawer and took out a framed photo.
Here you go sara…this is for you.
I wanted to give you this photo to remember your class. Sarah burst into tears. Tears of relief.
She’d almost forgotten that she was leaving this school and her class behind, to move to america.
Have safe travels Sarah, and remember what I taught you about america! There will be a lot to learn once you move!
I will, miss, sarah beamed! And thank you, thank you for being the best teacher in the world!
