Joseph’s Renovations prompts are fun; if you have not tried one, wander over. He is posting every day, so you have your choice of several and it doesn’t matter if you post them ‘not on the day’.
At The Sunday Whirl, Brenda gives us her usual selection of words that work with the admonition: Just write it! If you haven’t wordled yet, what are you waiting for? Brenda will have new words up on Sunday. Visit to see the wordle and to read what others have done.
At The Music In It: Adele Kenny’s Poetry Blog, Adele gives a mini-workshop in writing the personal narrative poem (not to be mistaken for a narrative poem). As she says of a resulting poem: It needs to approach the universal through the personal, it needs to mean more than the story it tells, and the old rule “show, don’t tell” definitely applies. Visit to see what else she says.
We’re at Mad Kane’s Humor Blog for Limerick-off Mondays. Never written one? What are you waiting for? Laughing is good, so visit to read, to laugh, perhaps to write. At the least, go read Madeleine’s limerick for this week’s line.
The Mag [Magpie Tales] gives us a black and white photograph by Degas (yes, you read that right). Go look at it.
Peggy, at Poetry Jam, offers us a variety of lasts. Head over to read what she says.
This week on Carol’s Light Words she wants to know about our kitchen tables. Head over to see. Also, Carol chooses a song each Friday to get us dancing around — remember she is on California time. A different kind of poetry and a whole lot of fun.
The Found Poetry Review’s weekly prompt asks: So, what does it mean to create found poetry from already-remixed art, re-working already recycled materials? Go on over to find out and to wander around and see what the Review is all about. All things found live there.
Poets & Writers’ suggestions for all three genres work as possibilities for a poem subject. This week we have Kafkaesque experiences, class, and loss. Visit. (NaNo-ers, their fiction suggestions are a wonderful resource for ideas)
At imaginary garden with real toads, Fireblossom Friday gives us a chance to take out an old favourite, dust it off, and share it. Head over to read about it. Go play with the toads.
At We Write Poems Misky is our guide this month. Everyone has a bicycle memory, right? Go on over and see what she wants us to do with it.
At Poets United Verse First gives us the ordinary. Head over.
Need to work on the tightness of your images? Over at dVerse, Gay Reiser Cannon talks to us about the American Sentence, show and tell at its best. Visit. Look around. Stay awhile; it’s a friendly place. Mulled wine coming up.
Flash fiction fans: I’m going to give you the link to the general site of Flashy Fiction, rather than always giving you Friday, as you might come to the site on a different day, thus be offered a different image. Pot luck.
If you have questions, ask. If you write in response to any of these, the people whose blogs you visit would love to read your responses. Post!
