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.
Thanks to anyone who decides to follow this account.
I have a habit of responding to all who do so, but this is a second account, and I may mess up when trying to determine who is a new follower and who is "also" following after connecting by way of my mastodon.cloud account.
It is not my intent to litter myself all over the fediverse. I will see how things go. I've made connections with several others on mastodon.art and think I'll feel at home here while NOT restricting my toots to artistic attempts. It looks like the instance won't generally mind.
Words have art in them, too.
Good luck to all of us.
Strength to the fediverse through the efforts of individuals.
Famous or well known, typically for some bad quality or deed.

Mid 17th century from medieval Latin decanthare
The number and variety of decanters on someone's dry bar is pesumably an indicator of their class...or perhaps their love of drink and maybe dey can't stop.
I need to find a literary agent. Tricky thing is everyone I talk to says - oh you have to 'know someone'....
I have this book that needs to be published, and read - widely.
My book is called #YesICan and is the sort of thing someone at an airport would buy. Motivational, yet psychology based, and practically written.
Good morning from here, puzzle fans!

All our attempts at syncretism are predicated on the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Each component is from very different origins, with different developmental processes, and yet, the combination represents one of the most widely accepted aggregations known to man.
Thank you for connecting.
This fediverse place is great, in my experience. I hope you will have a similar time.
I would recommend that you take a little time to work on a self-descriptive profile and do some posts. People will know what your interests are and will be more likely to connect with you, too.

Mycket glad att vintern är här ...
I love snow!
I thank you for the follow...and the challenge. I cannot begin to decipher your user name which appears to be a vertical squiggle.
It also appears that you write in Swedish. While my name is Swedish, I regret I am mostly ignorant of my father's native tongue.
I see that your account has been around since June, but with only a few posts. Please post more!
I would like to get to know more about you. Maybe I can begin to learn Swedish.
Love that "box of mushrooms".
Thank you for connecting.
It is interesting that you've gotten back into this social media thing at about the same time as a bunch of people in South Asia. Several new voices are here and sharing their experience.
It may turn out that my toots are not significant to you over time. Feel free to drop me, as you see fit.
Thank you for introducing me to the #VerseThursday hashtag and for choosing to make a connection.
'Till now, my random rhyming has been hooked primarily to #SmallPoems where some of us bounce word things around from time to time.
It is challenging to try to touch ALL the appropriate bases with hashtags without using too much space on them alone.
