@ddykstal Yes, I feel as though we were eased in at the beginning and the screws are being tightened now. I'm wondering how random the word generator is?! 😜 @macgenie

@crossingthethreshold The Nov 19 word is a bit tricky. I'll see if I can work with it.

@ddykstal Yeah even I gave up using the prompt everyday. My recent posts have been ones using a couple in a single update. β€œSelective” tested my creativity - am still struggling with latest ones 😐 @kaa @macgenie

@amit Yeah. I've composed one for tomorrow, but the usage is kind of lame. I'll sleep on it.

@crossingthethreshold I suspect many microbloggers, and micronauts will be woebegone trying to work out how to utilise woebegone πŸ˜•

@cn @crossingthethreshold @ddykstal Please direct your woebegone complaints to the random word generator..

Or feel free to generate your own alternative!

@macgenie I'm imposing my own constraints. I use the word as is. I've managed so far. The trickier part is how to wrap up the story in time.

@macgenie These words are really making me think, which from a writing perspective I think is good. That is I see these words as making me think of different ways to express myself.

@cn As a Minnesota native, I feel I have some right to use the word. 😎

@macgenie At least those of us on this side of the Date Line have a day-and-a-half to figure out what to do with that word; the Kiwis and Aussies may truely be woebegone!
