FOWC with Fandango — Home


It’s February 22, 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 “home.”

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.

    I’m running out of topics
    Nothing round to say

    No ode at home today

    Best I could do Fan……

    is red flowering gum trees
    and koalas
    home is
    sydney rock oysters
    cockies and currawongs
    home is
    swimming in tidal pools
    having a cold beer on a
    hot summers day
    home is sharing my life
    with someone who says
    “what do you think this…
    bush week? “

      And there it is again: I write something. And publish. And THEN I see the glaring typo. Apparently, nobody was home when I typed it. 🙄

        I did it today also. It’s especially annoying when you use a spell checker to catch stupid errors, and the spell checker misses something obvious.

          Sometimes, one can see the spellchecker at work; you watch the right letters going in, there they are. Then, after you’ve moved on in the sentence and aren’t looking at the same thing any more, cablamo!

          It’s a curse and all of us bloggers are cursed.

        It happens to all of us. When proofreading, your eyes see what you brain expects them to see, not necessarily what is actually written.

    Yelled Roam – the other gnome!

    … deep within the catacombs!
