Friday Freeforall: Weekend Takeaway

03 Dec

10:14 am, Friday, 3 December, 2010 – Atlanta

I will start with a Wordle for you to play with:

Remember that you may change the form of any of the words. If you need wintry instead of winter, or ran instead for run, have at it.

Now a plethora of places to wander through and check out their prompts:

Big Tent Poetry‘s prompt from last Monday is the word “enough”:

It’s a simple prompt this week: write to enough, be it not enough, more that enough, just enough. If you are quick, they post between now and Monday.

Jingle Poetry posts their prompt [often a mix of media] Sunday night and gives a week for us to post. The prompt which will go up this Sunday is : “Flash Forward!! After an enchanting week, we thought of going natural!!! So the theme for next week will be “Nature: Plants, Creatures and the Cosmos“!!! You will have a week to prepare your poem on this theme.. 🙂 And if you are unable to submit a poem fitting the theme, relax… Send in an older poem you would love to share with us…” If you want to work on last week’s, head for their site. The prompt involves magic and fantasy.

Magpie Tales has a visual prompt. If you like locations as inspiration, visit them.

Carry On Tuesday says : Each week Carry On Tuesday will publish either a famous quotation or the opening lines of a book, song or poem and invite you to Carry On where words stop. You may use some of the words or all of them either at the start of your piece or within the body of your work. This week their first line is from The Lion King, so if you like to have more than a word to start you off, visit them. Prompts are given Wednesday and they post on Tuesday.

Three Word Wednesday gives writers, poets and those who journal a mid-week jolt of creativity. Each week, three words are selected; you create something with the words…This is a place to stretch your muse, test your dreams. Get writing, you. Head their way if you like interesting combinations to wrestle with.

Cafe Writing–The Patio is back with their Thursday Threesome. They post three words that can be used individually or together, as a starter, or as the focus. Visit them and also check out The Bistro. The Bistro gives a monthly theme to work on. This month’s theme focuses on magic.

That should keep us all busy over the weekend. See if you can use some of the imagery you have been working with. I will see you Monday for more mantras. Have a good weekend.
