Dash

The Daily Post publishes a one-word prompt every day for everyone to write about. Today, the word is Dash.

My mental image of a dash comes in many forms. There’s the dash found in typography, there’s running in long strides, and a unit of measurement that’s approximately two pinches. Dash is also a staple name for characters with remarkable agility.

My favorite dash to make when typing is the ’em’ dash. It’s longer that a minus, which is longer than a hyphen. When used in a sentence, the dash brings forth brutal clarity when explaining an idea.

Dashing!
