GThe word of the day was to be grandiloquent but my pompous, bombastic self eluded me. With ego deflated, I settled for galimatias, a better description of my current writing  obstacle. It’s the memoir file that contains over 100,000 words – bits and pieces gathered from journals, workshop vignettes, and writing prompts -an organizational disaster. The monumental task becomes a marathon of decision. What to keep. What to delete.

    Out looking for fellow writers while blog hopping on a Friday afternoon in NorthCarolina. You’ve been busy! I am resting on my laurels today having everything in the queue except X & Z. It will come to me. If you have an interest in hotels and inns, that is my theme this year. Love the #Challenge….finding new blogs like yours. A perfect theme for the #Challenge. Short and sweet and educational. Good job.

    All your words have been fun so far, and this one is no exception. They’re too long to be good for Scrabble though, unfortunately.

    Sounds like gobbledygook to me! 🙂
