FOWC with Fandango — Debonair

FOWCWelcome to June 14, 2018 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “debonair.” 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.

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

    If I might make a suggestion: maybe you could put “One-word prompt” or some such title as a Category in your main menu (up top) so people can find it easily. When you’re posting other writing among the prompts, it can be a bit confusing for someone new to your site to quickly find the current prompt. (Though I see you do have it among your tags.)

      That’s a good idea. I know how to create a “up-top” page, but I’m not sure how to get each prompt to show up on that page without having to manually link each prompt to that page. I’ll see if I can figure it out. Thanks for the suggestion.

        You wouldn’t have to link each individual word, only the FOWC title. If you do it as a category then only those prompts will appear under it.

          Thanks. I’ll give it a try.

    That’s a favorite Garry word. Debonair. Like Cary Grant. He always loved the way Grant wore clothing and Garry became quite the clothes-horse himself. You’d never know it from his stretchy pants these days, but in his time, he was quite the dresser. I always felt slightly underdressed in his company — even when he was wearing shorts and a tee shirt. Even my FATHER commented that Garry looked better dressed in nothing than most people did in a tuxedo. It’s hard to live up to that.

      David Niven came to my mind first, but Cary Grant was, indeed, quite debonair.

        David Niven was the epitome of debonair! And I loved his autobiography, “Bring on the Empty Horses.” I should read it again….I last read it in 1979, I believe.

      Yes, I found it. Quite a tale with an unexpected ending. Well done.
