Word of The Day
It's about using words, of course, but, while an occasional favorite or boost happens, there's little engagement.
A two-part Challenge Proposal:
A) Post a toot using the word in any way, sentence, story, analysis, rhyme...
B) Doodlers and Artists, use the word as the subject of a #SketchChallenge
Get in on the fun of words and visual imagination.
Remember to use the #WordOfTheDay hashtag, of course.

Words have art in them, too.
Good luck to all of us.

Thanks for reaching out.
I'll look forward to seeing how your activity progresses. I tend to reciprocally follow those who are active in addition to those with whom actual conversations develop.
It's too early to tell with an account which has no visible toots in the web profile.
Good morning moonbeams.
No matter how small and insignificant you feel against the tapestry of our universe, there will always be someone or something that benefits from your existence.
