Alphabet Soup


Write down the letters of the ABC. For each one, choose a word that begins with that letter. Now, write a post about anything — using all the words you’ve selected.

With great appreciation I’ll welcome to any comments to this post. My routine has been broken because of something that never crossed my mind: The daily Prompt collapse and its empty grid. I’m feeling frustrated and gloomy. When the headline of the Daily Prompt was displaced from the header of the Daily Post page, I felt helpless, irrelevant and jealous. 

I would like to keep working as ever or at least manage to have a glimpse of normalcy. Instead it’s growing in me the nostalgia of the good old days when obviously there were no technical problems.

I guess I’ll take pot luck, but these days without place to share, I’m tempted to quit the prompt. But I will not. I’ll rather wait with patience, despite I’m skeptical after so much time of problems without a solution. I really hope the team will find soon a new unbreakable system that causes no victims. I hope we won’t have to wait till Xmas or New Year to get rid of the dreadful “zero responses”.
