It’s time for WHACKY WORDS! Remember, this is supposed to be FUN!
Thank you to everybody who played along for the previous word. The real meaning of the word Paizogony is necking; love-play. http://www.encyclo.co.uk/meaning-of-paizogony
The definition that captured my attention was posted by… there’s two for today! Jemi Fraser defined it as follows: the art of creating world peace. Ghandi & Mother Teresa were incredible paizogonists! (I’m all for world peace!) Sherry Ellis defined it as follows: the mathematical process of figuring out how to make your paycheck last until the next one. (I’m weak at maths, but could DEFINITELY take some time to master this theorem!) Congratulations ladies!
Today’s word is
The twin brother to Quasimodo, the “hideous” character in The Hunchback Of Notre Dame who was feared by the townspeople. Rumour has it that Victor Hugo removed Quisby (who was born without the hunch) from the story during the final draft, and then proceeded to re-write the story from scratch.
That’s my definition. (The word does have a meaning, but you are invited to play along by providing your own original meaning. No cheating and looking up the word. I’ll post the meaning next week). So do you wanna play along? Leave your definition in the comment section below.

What is F-S-F all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week the hostess will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.
A lost soul in a lost city.
Tossed about by gusts that fight for control of debris, the flotsam of humanity that move along in the daily grind, as the ravaged city sinks slowly into an abyss of no return…
From beneath the bridge, I monitor a ferocious wind, monstrous and relentless in its mission, lashing out and pummeling everything in its wake.
Flickers of horrendous images struggle to surface, finally give up and fade away like an unwanted dream.
It’s best this way… a return to the comfort of nothingness…
