Twiglet #190 Posted on August 18, 2020April 27, 2020 by Misky A twiglet’s aim is to “prompt” a thought. If something comes to mind, write. A polished piece isn’t the goal; creativity is.

The places we went!
What we’ve seen! Packed
with sibs and cousins, friends
and loathlings, sweating
in five-year obsolete tin cars.
The states we counted
by license plate. The cows
by color. Billboard brands.
Thermos jugs. Books read. Crayons
lost into the seat. Games of I See.
Games of hangman. Rock
Paper Scissors. Knock-
Knock jokes. See Rock City.
Ruby Falls. Knock down battles
fought for windows. Airstreams
soared by dirty hands. Long hair
braided into tangles. Tears
scrubbed off. Sulks poked
like sores. GIs killed by supervillains.
Shoes thrown out. Teddy bears.
Stops demanded. Seats
changed. Cola spilled.
Ice cream cones toppled.

Well. A lot of the time it was just books and tears.
How long did it take you to figure out the block editor? I’m appalled by my ineptitude.
A full day of experimenting with all the different block elements, plus how the code editor worked vs visual editor. The classic editor is still available on the right hand side if things need tweaking.
Are you using the Poem Block? I use the Text Paragraph block.
It sounds like a lot of fun, in between the mishaps.
Hi Misky! My blog is now Private, so I’ve sent you an “invite” to have access to read my posts. I enjoy Twiglets very much, and wanted to include you in the group of my favorite blog folks, but there’s no obligation attached 🙂
No invite received, so I requested access at your blog.
And you’re IN–thanks Misky!! 🙂 ❤
Thank you. Left a comment on your blog.
Hi Misky, thank you So Much 🙂

A short one here: circus road?
dVerse is also running a clown prompt!

(Cannot figure out this new WordPress at all. Limerick is not centered, because I see no way to center it.)
click the Paragraph Block to make it the focus, then at the top click on the little horizontal line for text alignment. There are options within that dropdown for left, right or centre alignment. And give the poem block a miss. I use the text paragraph, which has a lot of more flexibility.
Thanks. I have been trying Classic editor, which works better for me, but puts a space between lines. Ah, technology.

A bit longer than my usual Twiglet, and also bumped against a dVerse prompt.
