It Landed Spang on Target - Save-A-Word Saturday

It's Save-A-Word Saturday, the word and writing prompts lovers weekly blog hop.

Today's theme ishourglass

My word today is: spang  (adverb) exactly, directly, firmly or straight

And here's my writing for this word

Taylor started showing off in front of Darlene by rapping about how beautiful she is. You should have been there! She laughed so hard, a glob of saliva shot out of her mouth and landed spang on Taylor’s forehead in the shape of an hourglass. But he didn’t care. He kept up his white boy rap with that spittle sliding down his head for five minutes!

This weekly word lovers and prompt writers blog hop goes like this:

1. Create a lovely blog post that links back to The Feather and The Rose blog - our host.

2. Pick an old word you want to save from extinction to feature in your blog post. It really must be an old word, not just a big one. We are trying to save lovely archaisms, not ugly giants (for example, "Dihydrogen Monoxide" is not an acceptable choice). Luciferous Logolepsy is a great database of lovely words if you're having trouble coming up with something on your own.

3. Provide a definition of your word. Use your word in a sentence (or even a short paragraph) vaguely related to the theme we have chosen this week. You may also add visual or musical interpretations of your word or your sentence. In fact, add anything that moves your creative spirit.

4. Add your post to the linky list below (sometimes I add it later in the day). Then hop to as many other blogs as you can in search of as many wonderful words as possible!

5. Use as many of the words as you can on the people in your life. Do leave us a note or add something to your own post to let us all know what wonderful old word you whipped out to befuddle your friends and relations.


  1. Oh, cool! This one is short, easy to pronounce, and I feel like it could be really applicable to everyday life!

  2. Also, I stuck you on the linky--hope you don't mind. :)

  3. EW! I won't be able to forget this one that easily :) Which is good!

  4. Haha, spang on is a fantastic saying! Great choice.

  5. Your illustration, as usual, is spang on the mark - and it makes me chuckle! What a fun post to read my first day back to 'my' blogs!

  6. What a fun blog hop and a VIVID flash piece.

    Thanks for sharing, Nancy.

  7. Wow. Those were some sentences. I feel like I saw that happen in High School ;)


Your comments add wonderful flavors. Thank you!
