FOWC with Fandango – Instigate

Welcome to September 04th, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC

It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “Instigate.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

Of staring all day at the walls!
Nothing quite beats a jolly foursome!


So we had fun, and a bit of a giggle,
We were all outside in the sun!
Jostling about with a bounce and wiggle!
None of us willing to be outdone!


Me, my mate and his sisters!
Playing to our hearts content,
In an innocent game of   …


…….. What???
WHAT are you all like??
Honest to goodness gracious me!
What did you think l meant!?
