#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – Jan 22nd Contempt


Hi, Everyone,  it’s Judy here from Edwina’s Episodes. Linda has bravely entrusted me with her blog for the next three days, so I must be careful not to break it!

We are just about to enter our third week of the challenge, and I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am so far. So without further ado, I will get on with the job.

The Just Jot It January 22nd prompt, brought to you by Rosemary  of Rosemary Carlson, Freelance Writer, is: “contempt.” Use it any way you’re inspired to. And make sure you stop by and say hi to Rosemary as well! Here’s her blog:


The rules for Just Jot It January are as follows:

1. It’s never too late to join in! Here, we run on the honour system; the “jot it” part of JusJoJan means that anything you jot down, anywhere (it doesn’t have to be a post, it can even be a grocery list) counts as a “Jot.” If it makes it to your blog that day, great! If it waits a week to get from a sticky note to your screen, no problem!

2. The prompts will be posted every day at 2am my time (GMT -5). You don’t have to follow the prompt word, but this will be where you leave your link for others to see. Make sure you link your post to the correct day’s prompt. There will be a post like this every day except Wednesday, when the prompt is simply my One-Liner Wednesday, and Saturday, when you’ll find the prompt on my usual Friday Reminder post for Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS).

3. As long as your blog is on WordPress, you’ll be able to link via pingback. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL from the daily prompt post, and paste it anywhere in your post. Check to make sure your link shows up where you want it to, and go back occasionally to see other bloggers’ entries – the more you visit others, the more they’ll visit you! If you’re participating from another blogging host, just drop a link into the comment section. Note: The newest pingbacks and comments will be at the top.

4. Tag your post JusJoJan and/or #JusJoJan.

5. Write anything! Any length will do! It can even be a photo or a drawing – you’re going to title it, right? There’s your jot!

6. The prompts are here both to remind you and to inspire you to write. However, you don’t have to use the prompt word of the day. You can link any kind of jot back here. Even your shopping list. Note: If it’s 18+ content, please say so in a comment with your link.

7. If you’d like to, use the JusJoJan badge (above) in your post so that others can find your post more easily.

8. Have fun!

In my (very) early 50s, wife and mum, have worked in the community and hospital settiings as an Associate Practitioner (nursing). I have now just started on my journey to obtain my degree in nursing so am a student again! I come from a large family (plenty of ammo there for my blog), I love music (as long as it's 1980's or before), and words (so much we can do with them)! Oh, and last of all, I love to laugh, and hopefully make others laugh as well!

  10. Well I waited up to link up with Linda’s post last night. She has been posting JuJoJan around 2am I think Eastern Standard Time which is 11 pm here. Then I just tried to figure out the link address but see yours is a bit different.I must have missed the memo that you were hosting. I have to say it is hard for us out her in Pacific Standard Time to get our posts linked up. I would rather not have to stay up until, God know when. What time are you planning to be posting the prompts?
