FOWC with Fandango — Gumption

FOWCWelcome to June 16, 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 “gumption.” 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.

    Isn’t that a cleaning product? One that used to work well? Oh, well – it would take gumption these days to have products do their work too well …

      I’ve never heard of or seen a cleaning product with that name. At least not in the US. Maybe in your part of the world….

        It may have been British, but we did get it in Australia. It was a paste-type cleaner for tough stuff.

    Don’t give up. When I first started a prompt, I got ONE response. By the time I couldn’t go on with it because, as it turned out, my heart was failing, I had dozens and no idea how to manage it. Don’t forget to publicize!

      Any suggestions about how best to publicize?

        I use Twitter to bounce it to Facebook and Facebook the following day. Garry also posts to HIS group, which is closed and that brings in a fair number of hits, too. But mostly, if you are around most of the time and it’s good stuff, it will find its place. A lot of these new prompts will disappear anyway. That’s just what happens. They become burdensome.
