100 Words - The Not So Highbrow Writing Prompt

100 Word Challenge writing promptSo, uh, November is over. Y'all still alive after National Novel Writing Month? Did you participate this year? Did you finish?

I was smart this year, I didn't announce to anyone that I would or wouldn't be participating, just in case. Good thing, because once it became clear my work life would be changing pretty radically, I knew it would be mental suicide to even attempt NaNoWriMo. So yeah, there's no novel sitting on my hard drive people. And I'm totally fine with that.

In other news, I noticed a little spike in Facebook followers yesterday. Can't figure out where they came from, so if any of you new followers are reading this, I'm curious to know how you found the 100 Words Facebook page.

I'm not currently reading anything. Next week I'll be starting The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood with my book club. If anyone is interested in doing a virtual book club discussion, let me know, that could be fun. In the meantime I decided to raid Mr. Verbosity's literary bookshelf. He was an English Lit major in grad school, so he's got quite a collection of high-brow books on writing, writing theory, poetry, and so on. I grabbed randomly and walked away with, The Lively Image: 4 Myths in Literature by Richard E. Hughes. And with the good old trusted point-the-finger method, your word this week is:

Whatever

Ha! I find this terribly amusing. But, WHATEVER, write me 100 words dear word-nerdlings. I'm off to curl up in a chair with some hot chocolate.

P.S. Don't forget to tell me in comments how you did in NaNoWriMo, and/or how you recently found 100 words.
