listening to Another One Bites the Dust by Queen — that’ll get your blood going, although typing to the beat doesn’t quite work
Well, hello, everyone. I opened this page and couldn’t remember what to do, for a moment. It’s not so much the length of time, as that combined with the intense focus on something else for thirty days. I have missed my regular routine. Many, many, of you participated in the month-long celebration of poetry and might be feeling a little brain shock. Let’s start easy. We started in a similar way last year and I rather like it.
1] Is there a prompt from the past month that you would love to have written without constraints of any kind? Or, one that you think you can rewrite much better, given a couple of days?
2] Another possibility is a prompt that you saw and didn’t get to. There were a number of sites that posted prompts every day and only a couple of insane people who tried them all [you know who you are]. Did you see one on someone’s site, thought ‘Oooh!’ and that was the last you thought of it as you sped by? So, go back, find it and write.
3] Is there an idea you had based on one of the prompts but that you were not able to get to during the month? Here’s your chance.
4] If you did not participate in writing a poem a day, all three of the above can be adapted. Have at it.
Choose one of these and write ‘awesome’. Whichever you choose, let us know the original prompt. If your poem is radically different, brand new, even, give us the other poem. When you are done and posted, leave a link in comments below [fyi, new folks].
I will see you Thursday for links; Friday for the week’s prompt roundup; and next Tuesday for another of my prompts.
Happy writing, everyone.
