Some thoughts on WBW Just Seven Words Add/Read Comments
Snooth Wine Search:
But I had nothing, hence the call. Luckily their plans changed and my posts publication has been postponed. (I don't think they quite grasp the essence of these rolling blogger events). Still it was lucky they changed the publication date as the result from the twitter-call was zilch.
Understandable perhaps. Most will want to keep what they have for the day itself. That evening, glugging on a decent Portuguese white (at £3.49 a bargain), I came up with a couple of seven word tasting notes, which may aid (or perhaps hinder) those thinking of taking part -
- horrible if you suck a mint beforehand
- eases passage through Hollyoaks, awaiting C4 news
- cheap as chips, great with them too
What these three examples don't do is explain the flavour, the colour, the 'taste' which was the aim. But it is damn hard. Have you tried?
What did result from the exchange with the editor was a rather interesting thought - if you can't find the exact word, why not invent one?. Just an idea.
