Saturday, December 8, 2018

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

Still on a verb streak. I love how a good verb can flip a sentence.  Have fun with it

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.

 

FYI: Starting next week we will have a new Saturday prompter:  drkottoway of KO Rural Mad As Hell Blog.  Please make her welcome.  I’ve enjoyed working with you all and presenting prompts on Ragtag Community.  I hope you have enjoyed the prompts as well.  Thank you!

    1. Thanks for joining in. I’m not sure what you mean by “descriptive nick name”. By the picture, I thought it was the adjective use of “broad” but maybe that place was nicknamed “Squat”? Or the person HIlliard was nicknamed “Squat” for being broad? Just curious. Enjoyed reading your story. Very succinct and with a lot of prompts. Very cool!

      1. Oh, so he must have been short stout guy? Unless he was tall and thin and it was a joke. I don’t really know anything about Hilliard so I’ll go check him out on Wiki.
