One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

This Prompt Brought to You By the Letter


We are almost to the finish line, Toads! We can do it! Let’s wander with some wonderful words for when we’re waxing... it’s your W word list:


words
worthy
work
wherewithal
werewolf
wonder
wonky
wily
whatever
welcome
winsome
why
wine
wind
wander

Write like the wind! Work with some of these and add your own W words. Wow us! Can’t wait.

I've spent way too much time writing lately, so here's a quick one. Thank you for the wonderful prompt!

Oh good, something silly for the closing stages. At least I hope that was what Marian expected :-)

Excellent Saturday challenge, Marian, Many thanks for taking us into the final weekend. If you have read the sidebar, who will understand I am rather debilitated at present but have a week off to catch up on all these excellent suggestions for writing.

Why-not? Working words with whatever worthy word welcomes, wonderment!

Refreshing! Thanks! ~ Why wipe white walls? - we write wee willingly. :)

I still remember the W story from the Electric Company! It was about Wanda the Wicked Witch who lived somewhere in West Washington...

Hey Marian--I was true to the letter (and maybe spirit) of prompt but not the list. I was honestly a bit tired to focus on the specifics--I'm sorry--but I really do appreciate the inspiration of all these prompts. Thanks much. K.

Kerry--so sorry you are not well. Sounds painful. k.

Just a little illustrated nonsense with W words from me, Marian.
Congratulations to everyone who is working on NaPoWriMo. The end is nearly nigh, and I'm proud of you.
And Kerry, when you get better and read this, I tried to post some good cheer on the Toads' chatroll, but it rejected me.
Luv, K

My brain is mush from all the writing, but I did come up with something. Great challenge Marian!

So glad I took this photo today while on the only rest stop my husband made during our ten mile bike ride today… Thanks for the challenge and I will be around Sunday evening to visit and comment -it's been a weekend full of family - which is a good thing :)

Marian's first letter side down up is of course W. Maybe I'm still wasted from Willard, where Margaret left us reeling yesterday. Well, weirder ways have been wended. ~
