Possible.  Thank you Random Word Generator for such a hopeful word, just when I was feeling a bit dispirited. #mbnov

@NellKate I do think the RWG is suffering a pandemic slump this year. I already know how I'm going to do it differently in 2021: crowd source a big list from the Micro.blog community and then use a randomizer to spit a word from that list daily.

@macgenie I hope my post didn't come out sounding like criticism of the RWG! I was having a down afternoon and genuinely enjoyed thinking about the positive possibilities of the word possible but didn't have the energy to be creative. (Sorry for the alliteration - hard habit to resist). It is tricky to convey nuances when I am writing, especially if I am writing hastily - sorry. This is my first Microblogvember and I have been really enjoying it, both the writing (even if I cringe a bit afterwards) and especially reading what others have written! I like your idea of a crowdsourced word list for next year. I'd love to see what people come up with (and would be happy to join in, too). Thanks, much!

@NellKate No worries! I just wanted you to know I also have noticed the random words being a bit of a downer more frequently than last year. Possible was nice, and I got to write about pie 🥧.

I like alliterations too.

@macgenie @NellKate I do like the challenge of writing with a positive mindset even when the RWG provides us with words which often have a negative connotation. But that could just be me ;-)

@macgenie Thanks!! The pie sounds delicious, by the way. :) A friend and I did a spate of allitera-thons, at one point. :)

@roelwillems Turning the negative on its head sounds like an excellent challenge, actually. :)
