FOWC with Fandango — Bashful


Welcome to November 10, 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 “bashful.”

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.

    Can’t pee when others ’round
    It shuts right off, says no Don

    Just confidence I lack

      Fortunately, I can pee any time, any place, although I prefer to do it in private if possible.

      Parurersis or parucesis…it’s all Greek to me. Or maybe Latin.
