FOWC with Fandango — Literally

FOWCWelcome to June 17, 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 “literally.” 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.

    I literally cannot believe that my mother woke me up at 3am just to tell me about the raccoon that comes by every night like I told her it did.

    Oops.. Looks like I’m already here. Just want to say that what I write in the following poem is correct. They’ve extended the meaning of “literal” to include its opposite. Yes, language is constantly changing, but come on now. Will black soon mean white and will liberty for all soon mean liberty for those who can afford it? Oh. Well.

      I’m afraid you may be right about liberty — or perhaps there is no such thing, and liberty actually means oppression?

      It’s reminiscent of Orwell’s “newspeak” from his novel, 1984.

        Yes, I know. Crazy, isn’t it. I have a feeling POTUS is a master at this sort of thing.
