Blogging Insights — Prompt Me

It’s Monday (albeit late Monday) and Dr. Tanya is back with her weekly Blogging Insights prompt. Today Dr. Tanya has given us a quote from a writer and wants to know what we think.

“Writing is always difficult, but easier with something to say.”

Today’s quote comes from “Bridge of Clay” author Marcus Zusak.

I agree that writing his easier when you have something to say. Because writing when you have nothing to say serves no purpose, other than maybe to hear yourself talk…or read your own words.

I know that if I don’t have anything to say (or to write about), I won’t write a post. Fortunately, I rarely have nothing to say, and, as a result, writing comes fairly easy to me.

Of course, there are times when external factors may affect your ability to write. Like since I broke my hip a month ago and have been struggling to find the energy to write. I still believe I have something to say, but I just can’t generate the energy to say it. Hopefully this, too, shall pass.

Share Your World — 02/13/2023

Share Your World

Di, at Pensitivity101, is our host for Share Your World each week. Here are her SYW questions for this week, three of which were provided by Marla.

If you could rename yourself, what name would you choose and why?

I’m perfectly happy with my first name given to me by my parents, and my blogger name, Fandango, that I gave myself. So no change to either.

If you were tasked with naming a new star, what would you name it and why?

Hari Seldon. Why? Blame Isaac Asimov.

If you were a story/comic book hero, what would your name be and why?

Grim Fandango, who as actually a video game character.

If animals could talk, which would be the rudest?

A laughing hyena.


I am grateful that I won’t need surgery to repair the broken humerus in my right arm. Just a whole lot (months) of physical therapy for both the arm and my busted hip.

FOWC with Fandango — Past


It’s February 13, 2023. 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 “past.”

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.
