Alex J. Cavanaugh is co-hosting a blog challenge, and I’m taking him up on it. During the month of April, participants are to blog every day except Sundays (I WILL blog on Sundays), with each day’s post beginning with or based on subsequent letters of the alphabet. I think it’ll be awesome! beautiful! cool! delightful! exciting! fun!
Speaking of gauntlets, you do know there’s a difference between gauntlets and gantlets, right?
You throw one of these down to issue a challenge, and you pick up a thrown down one to accept the challenge. I don’t care what anybody says, it isn’t a form of punishment where you have to run between rows of people who are trying to hurt you. That’s a gantlet. LISTEN TO ME WHEN I’M TALKING TO YOU!
Okay, use the two interchangeably. See if I care. You’re not hurting anybody but yourself.
WRITING PROMPT: Have a character throw down or pick up a metaphorical gauntlet or run a metaphorical gantlet.
