Prompt—word of the day

Dirty vacuum cleaner roller-brush with a muddle of threads

“Prompt.” It’s a word. It’s a hint. It’s a puzzle.

I love the sound of this word and the look of it too. So plump and spitty. I think of theatre … punctuality … and why not use my word-of-the-day as a weekly blogging prompt, now that The Daily Post no longer provides a daily prompt? I’m going to put a new word here every Monday.

    I, too, like the word prompt. For me, it is also kinetic. I can feel Sister Cornelius’ bony finger in my back. I can feel my body swaying as I come to a sudden stop in answer to a call. In print it is not only a word I can see, it is a word I can hear. Yes. Prompt, but not cavalier. Prompt, but not submissively reflexive. Prompt is a good word.
