Your Word Is...

This challenge has ended!

This is a one word challenge. You can write in any genre, any way you like. Just write about the first thing you think of when you hear the word.
When I read this word, all alone, I began to think of it as a noun and as a verb. Ideas began pinging around. Catch one, and ink it in.

    I heard Ursula K Le Guin read a short story she wrote using this method in her writing group. It was interesting and got me to think about other words that can work for this kind of thing.

Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
