The Dog Days of August

Fandango’s Dog Days of AugustIt’s August tomorrow, and for those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere, August is known for its sultry days of heat and humidity. This time of year is often referred to as “the dog days of August.”

August, because of the uncomfortable weather conditions, is sometimes associated with laziness. But I don’t want our blogging community to be lazy during this year’s dog days of August. And that’s why, starting tomorrow, and running through the whole month of August, I’m going to be posting a new daily prompt.

Each morning at 6 am my time (Pacific time), I will be suggesting a topic for you to use for your post. You can use the topic any way you want. Write a story. Craft a poem. Post a photo or a drawing. Find a relevant song. Or do with the prompt whatever pleases you. No limits.

So don’t let the August heat and humidity get you down. Don’t be a lazy blogger during these dog days. Take the daily prompts and have fun with them. Tag you post #FDDA and create a pingback to each day’s prompt post or post a comment with your post’s link. And read what others are doing with their dog days of August.

Look for Fandango’s Dog Days of August #1 tomorrow.

      33 C is like 90F, right? That’s hot. No, this is not replacing FOWC. It’s an additional prompt for the month of August only.

        sorry, forgot you guys are F, yes a little over 90. Warm/sunny outside, but starting to get a bit humid, a lot cooler in the house.

    Love it! I am definitely a lazy blogger….I get overwhelmed and find so many other things to occupy my time, but I love the energy – the synergy – of our blogging community. Thank you for giving me yet another reason to find my way back to blogging regularly 🖤
