Saturday, October 20, 2018

Create a new post inspired by today’s prompt. Feel free to be inspired to write fiction, nonfiction or create photos, art.

ok, this one should make you all happy.  This word is 500 years old!

Fabulist

adjective:
noun
plural: fabulists

  1. a person who composes or relates fables.
  2. a liar, especially a person who invents elaborate, dishonest stories.

The root of fabulist is from the Old French fable meaning a “lie or pretense,” which in its turn came from the Latin fabula, “story, play, or tale,” or literally, “that which is told.”  So that’s why it can mean either storyteller or liar.  Up you which way you go.

Rhymes with list for the rhymers in the group.

Please tag it “RDP” and/or “Ragtag Daily Prompt”. Also create a pingback  (copy and paste this url into the word). If the pingback doesn’t work, copy your link in the comments below. Do give pingbacks a little time.  Occasionally random pingbacks end up in the spam folder — don’t worry, we all check it regularly and will fish folks out and approve them.
