Happy to announce we are planning on taking up our series of writing prompts again!
How about using an old-fashioned word like "nonpareil" today? As a name for an equally old-fashioned love cookie covered in coloured beads, to describe a certain script you didn't even know it exists until today, for a unique species of insect, or for an extraordinary moment in time...?
(By the way, this naturally is no Clifden nonpareil, also called blue underwing, or Catocala fraxini. Still I hardly can believe this moment actually happened right in my garden, right this autumn.)
