Forty-three words …

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Lucid and the limit, 43 words.



Lucinda Longbottom was not the most lucid lecturer at Littlebutte Learning centre.  Her love of alliteration meant her lessons lacked intelligibility: her meaningless meanderings left many muddleheaded and mystified.

She was dismissed.

Luckily she landed a likeable livelihood as a lexicographer in London.

    Literally loved lecturer Lucy’s little life-story. Kudos Keith!

    Lots to like in this lugubrious, level-headed lexicon.
    Are you from Leith, Keith?

    Hi Keith – I think I’d better leave the ‘ell’ out of the comment … clearly done though! All the best – Hilary
