Truthful Tuesday — One or Many?
Di, of Pensitivity101, is now our new host of Truthful Tuesday post. She mentioned that Truthful Tuesday was originally conceived by PCGuy IV in July 2020. This was his first set of questions:
- Do you prefer coffee or tea? (You must pick at least one, even if neither are your favorite beverage.)
- Considering your previous choice, do you prefer it hot or iced?
- How do you take it (cream, sugar, honey, black, etc.)?
- What is your earliest memory of drinking coffee?
- What is your earliest memory of drinking tea?
If you’re interested, my response to PCGuy IV’s inaugural questions is here.
Today’s Truthful Tuesday question from Di is:
Do you prefer a single question, a variety on a theme, or a mixture of both for the Truthful Tuesday prompt?
Di, it’s your prompt, so you should do whatever you want to do with it. Personally, I would prefer one meaty question, since there are other prompts, including your own Share Your World prompt, that pose multiple questions.
That said, as I sometimes do with my Provocative Question prompt, I ask one primary question with some related questions, such as why or how or when.
But, as I said, it’s now your prompt, so whatever floats your boat, Di.
I’m trying an experiment and I need your help. I post my blog posts on my iPhone, rarely looking at them on my laptop computer. And so it’s hard for me to assess, for most of you who probably use laptops or desktops to read blog posts, if the normal font size for my posts is too large or too small. So, I’ve changed my font size on my blog’s theme from “Normal” to “Large.”
Here’s the way it used to look before making this change:
Now that I’ve applied the change, here’s my quick question:
Do you like the larger font size better? Is it easier to read? Or do you prefer the way it was before?

Fandango’s Story Starter #71
It’s time for my weekly Story Starter prompt. Here’s how it works. Every Tuesday morning (my time), I’m going to give you a “teaser” sentence and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build a story (prose or poetry) around that sentence. It doesn’t have to be the first sentence in your story, and you don’t even have to use it in your post at all if you don’t want to. The purpose of the teaser is simply to spark your imagination and to get your storytelling juices flowing.
This week’s Story Starter teaser is:
Craig had to choose a path, but given his history of making poor decisions, he…
If you care to write and post a story built from this teaser, be sure to link back to this post and to tag your post with #FSS. I would also encourage you to read and enjoy what your fellow bloggers do with their stories.
And most of all, have fun.
FOWC with Fandango — Paragraph
It’s November 8, 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 “paragraph.”
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.
