FOWC with Fandango — Beware

FOWCWelcome to March 15, 2019 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 “beware.”

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.

      This isn’t my writing, so… I’m kinda maybe cheating — but I like it.

      …. The middle eight delivers the message that this “can hurt you”, and that “that is not what you are here for.”[2] {*}

      Author Simon Leng describes the melody of “Beware of Darkness” as “complex and highly original”.[4] The melody of the verses incorporates a pedal point on the key of G major and moves to G sharp minor, a progression Leng claims “should not work in harmonic terms”, using as an analogy a count of “one, two, six”, but notes that somehow the melody manages to work.[4][6] Music professor Wilfrid Mellers explains the effectiveness of this key shift as dramatising the “beware” in the lyrics.[6] Similarly, Mellers claims that harmonic movement from the key of C sharp minor to D major to C major “creates the ‘aimless’ wandering of ‘each unconscious sufferer'” described in the lyrics.[6] The nearly chromatic melody of the verses contrasts with a more standard rock melody in the middle eight.[4] The musicians on the recording include Harrison…

      {* Technically, I may actually believe we are here to experience hurt. Nevertheless, it is also not a goal to pursue [while overcoming illusion is]. Now I have included my own writing.}

    🙂 Fandango, you caught my attention with your headline. For a brief moment, you had me concerned about what I needed to be aware of.

    I sighed with relief when I learned that it was only a prompt.

    Do enjoy the rest of your day, my friend!

      They don’t go into spam, but for some reason, they always require manual approval.

    I can’t share my link. When I try, WordPress sends the comment to Spam.
