Writing Checklist for the WordPress Daily Post


Welcome Dear Readers!  Today, my brain, Peanuts, and I thought it might be fun to try our hand at the WordPress Daily Post writing-prompt challenge:

Singular Sensation

If one experience or life change results from you writing your blog, what would you like it to be?

Naturally, Dear Readers, Peanuts and I would like to do our very best writing for our very first WordPress Daily Post writing-prompt challenge. Therefore it’s time to whip out the ol’  handy-dandy Preliminary Very Best Post Writing Checklist.

The Preliminary Very Best Post Writing Checklist

Punctuation teeth brushed?    

Key to the adverb lockbox located?    

Transitive and intransitive verbs sorted into their respective bins?   

Prepositional phrases wearing clean underwear?  

Metaphors placated?  

Passive Voice snuck up behind and pushed off cliff?    

Independent clauses given instructions for meet up?   

Dangling participles sent to rehab?  

Dependent clauses apron strings cut?   

Dear Readers, it looks like it’s “All Systems Go!”   The only things left to do now is count down to the actual post itself.

Ten . . . nine . . . eight . . . seven . . . six . . . five . . . four . . . .three . . . two . . . one . . . Phew!  Typing all those ellipses is exhausting!   Now Peanuts and my fingers are aching something fierce  . . . ouch! (Typing that last ellipse was pure agony!)  Well, anyway . . . ow!  Let’s get back to the WordPress Daily Post writing challenge . . . ow!

If one experience or life change results from you writing your blog, what would you like it to be?

Peanuts and I would like it to be not arthritis!

And there you have it, Dear Readers!  Our very first the WordPress Daily Post writing-prompt challenge. It was fun.  Painful but fun.

Until next time . . . (ouch!!!!) I love you

  1. Brilliance! I don’t think anyone I read does a setup and punchline like this as well as you.

    (Just make sure the transitive and intransitive verbs don’t touch each other, or the resulting explosin could wipe out bloggerdom!!!)

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
