X is for X-MARK

            I cracked open the dictionary and there were like, five words for X.

            Okay, I’m exaggerating—there were twelve.   But I suspect that everyone participating in this challenge has had to get creative with this letter.

            For me, X stands for an author's simple signature. Your mark.  

            Whatever you write; be it romance, comedy, action, science, erotic or intrigue—it has your fingerprint  on it. 

            And that’s one heck of an X. 

            Only two letters left!   Where has April gone??

            Tomorrow Y is for YARDSTICK. 



  1. I love the little smiley at the end!

    1. Thank you. It's kind of proof I emoticon everything, isn't it? LOL!

    2. I use that smiley primarily in personal letter and cards, now that I think about it. I think this is his first public debut. :0)

    1. Forgot to say - your blog's title is catchy as hell. I enjoy the rhyming aspect of it. Very clever! :-)

    2. Thank you! I trying for something different. As for the name, I started with the "narrative" part and looked for rhyme. I like "comparative" because I do weigh things in my head all the time, so it seemed appropriate. I honestly did not Google it.

      Thank you for stopping by! I'm going to check out all the other X entries today. :0)
