It was getting late, night was falling, and I found myself all alone in a strange neighborhood. Nothing looked familiar. Then someone approached me from one of the side streets. He was a large, menacing looking fellow. As he got closer and closer to me, my heart began to pound in my chest. When he stopped a few feet in front me, I was having trouble taking a breath. I was about to turn and run for my life when he said, “Hey, buddy, you look a little lost. Can I help you out?”

Welcome to October 16, 2021 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).
Today’s word is “resolve.”
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. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.
And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
