RDP Wednesday – Mettlesome

Our prompt for the day is “mettlesome”.

Adjective – met-ul-sum – full of vigor and stamina; lively, gritty, spirited, gallant

In the sixteenth century, mettle was a variant spelling for metal, when metal denoted both, substances like iron or gold, as well as the figurative meaning of spirit or courage. By the eighteenth century, mettle and metal were distinctly defined.

Compose a post using the word “mettlesome”. It could be a description in words, or an interpretation in pictures. What does the word mean to you? You know the rules. Use “ragtag daily prompt” , “RDP” , and “mettlesome” as tags. Add “photo” if you’re sharing a picture, as specific tags make your posts more accessible to other bloggers. Pingback your posts to this page or copy-paste your links in the comment thread here. And while you’re around, browse through what fellow bloggers have come up with using the day’s prompt.

Feel free to read, write, click, share. We love to hear and see it all!



  1. WP is checking on my pingback problem. They think I am being mettlesome because the looked through my site and did not see any problems! 🙂 I tried to explain better (it ain’t workin’!!!), so we shall see.

      1. HI Tracy–I did not post. I wanted to wait and see what WP said. From what I understand they are saying the way I have been hyperlinking is no longer working. I am, hopefully, going to try again tomorrow. Thanks for looking out for me. I really appreciate it.
