RDP#87- ADULATION

Definition

: excessive or slavish admiration or flattery

According to Mirriam-Webster “the word ultimately derives from the Latin verb adulari, meaning “to fawn on” (a sense used specifically of the affectionate behavior of dogs) or “to flatter.” Adulation, which came to us from Latin by way of Old French, can be traced back as far as the 15th century in English. The verb adulate, the noun adulator, and the adjective adulatory later joined the language.”

Think on it. Be inspired by it. Let it worm into your creativity. Write, draw, photograph, sing–just set your pingback and tag as “RDP”, “Ragtag Daily Prompt” and “Adulation”.

To set a pingback: use the word, highlight it, then click on the “insert link” icon (that’s the one that looks like a paperclip or a chain link). It will ask for the URL of this post. You can copy and paste that in the appropriate block. Hit enter (or done). That’s it!

Happy Writing!
