NaPoWriMo Day 2 Prompt for Tuesday April 2, 2013 April 1, 2013April 1, 2013
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails…explore…dream….discover.
– Mark Twain
Technically… today NaPoWriMo begins. You aren’t late… we just got started early.
The Prompt I posted yesterday is for today. You have until midnight to write your April 1st poem (on April 1st).
April 2nd prompt is Tabloid Titles.
You’ve seen the ‘shocking’ ‘outrageous’ ‘scandalous’ headlines on the tabloid newspapers at your grocery store checkout. Use a half-dozen or more words you might see used in tabloid headlines to create your poem today. Your subject should not be the Tabloids themselves and shouldn’t be something you would normally use tabloid style words to describe. Any style, no rules on rhyme, meter or form. Have fun with it.
See the last couple of posts for NaPoWriMo info.
I’ll post my April 1st poem tomorrow….
April 1st Prompt was to write an Ekphrastic poem on Hawaiian Shirts.
Shout out to Brendan who jumped on the first prompt, ( also used and referenced quotes I shared) then wrote and shared the first prompt poem of the year (that I saw). It’s on his blog here: Elsewhere in the rain
Happy Birthday to my friend in Los Angeles, Brian D. (wonderful writer/journalist but not a poet—yet).
The root of the word Poetry is from the Greek ποιέω (poieō), “‘I
make’”). , poiesis, meaning a “making” or ‘creation’
