FOWC with Fandango — Curious

FOWCWelcome to May 15, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “curious.”

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. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

Note: some bloggers have had issues with pingbacks not showing up lately, so if you don’t see it shortly after you published your post, you might want 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.

Friday Fictioneers — The View


Samantha was a very shy girl. She rarely left her yard and was so shy that she even refused to go to school, forcing her parents to homeschool her.

Samantha was also a very curious girl. She wanted to know about everyting. But she refused to leave the confines of her yard.

So her parents bought two large window boxes, placed them on the wall that separated their property from the street, and filled them with tall grasses, leaving a very small opening in between for Samantha to peek through.

And that’s how Samantha got to see the outside world.
