One-Liner Wednesday — The Most Fun

“Writing is the most fun you can have by yourself.”

Terry Pratchett, English humorist, satirist, and author of fantasy novels

I don’t know, Terry. If I think real hard about it, I might be able to come up with something you can have more fun doing by yourself other than writing.

Written for Linda G. Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday prompt.

Fandango’s Provocative Question #178


Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.

By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.

What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.

I am unabashedly stealing my provocative question this week from another blogger, Rory, who you may remember as A Guy Called Bloke. He has a new blog now, Earthly Comforts. Last week, Rory posed a number of Rory-like questions in this post. But I found one of his questions particularly provocative. So I decided to ask it here and to see how all of you would respond to this question.

Note that in Rory’s post, he gave an out, saying, “If you are not sure, well then make something up!” I would prefer that you a come up with a more serious answer, but if you are so inclined, you can go ahead and “make something up.”

With that said, here, thanks to Rory, is this week’s provocative question…

When did time actually begin?

If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ 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. But remember to check to confirm that your pingback or your link shows up in the comments.

FOWC with Fandango — Writer


It’s August 17, 2022. Welcome 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 “writer.”

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. Show them some love.
