Activation

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/07/10/your-daily-word-prompt-activation-july-10-2019/ A nondescript voice announced, “Your activation has begun.” Foggy though I was, my brain still encapsulated in blankets of sleep‘s woven tendrils, I couldn’t figure out what was happening. Was I still dreaming? Was this real? Where the hell was I? Staring at the groups of people waiting expectantly around me, I looked into […]

Abject

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/07/03/your-daily-word-prompt-abject-july-3-2019/ Without assistance on this massive project, it was an abject lesson in futility, or so he thought.

Insincere

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/06/16/your-daily-word-prompt-insincere-june-16-2019/ June was flummoxed.  Darren Franks had been given the opportunity of a lifetime, to be with the best, learn from the best, walk shoulder to shoulder with the best and if he’d chosen to prove himself, he could have flown, soared, Jackson would have guaranteed it.

Stolid

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/06/07/your-daily-word-prompt-stolid-june-7-2019/ Nigel was a stolid thinker.  It was essential, it was how he worked.  There were several strategies open to him and his men.  Dozens of questions and scenarios raced through his mind.  Which would work best in this case was the question.  Divide and conquer?   The 2nd perp didn’t appear as committed as the […]
