Word of the Day Prompt

I’ve never written a prompt… and I don’t know if I have enough followers who would use it… BUT I’ve decided some of my best writing seems to be when I use a list of words for a prompt – like a wordle. So I made my own prompt today by doing a Google search for “Word of the Day.” I am using the first 10 sites that brought me to an actual word (some were pages to download apps from).  If you write to it, I’d be interested in reading it… so I’m not sure how pingbacks work, but that would be cool… or just leave me the link in a comment.  I’m gonna work on it, but I have class and dance tonight so I might not really get it finished until tomorrow.
