Listcicles . . . Prompt #762

Thank you, Deb Fenwick, for introducing the word and concept, Listcicles, to me. .

Make a list of things that you did for the first time, or the last time you did this thing.

Use one of those responses for your freewrite, or write a listcicle.

“Listicles (also known as “list posts”) are articles that are written in a list-based format. The most common form of listicle is a short list of 10-20 items that are based on a specific theme. However, modern listicles are often enhanced with additional information around each item to make them more useful.” Wikipedia
