A list poem about why

A Few Suggestions:

1. In a notebook, make comments about how you feel about two or three of these words.

2. Use something from those notes to write a first line to your poem.

3. If that doesn’t suggest anything, then try doing the same with two or three more of the words.

Remember: persistence does pay off.

The words for this list were taken from a poem that may be found here:

NaPoWriMo Poetry Prompt #16: Day 16

New List!

A list poem about why

A few suggestions:

1. Yes we are past the halfway mark, but need to counteract the let down, numbies, or blank mind symptoms that may occur. Pamper yourself today.

2. Take yourself out on an “artist’s date”. Go somewhere new to you, somewhere ‘colorful’,
or filled with movement you are not used to seeing or doing.

3. Writing is breathing and you can’t exhale without first inhaling. Use some time today to refresh and refuel. Then go look at the prompts.

Find a playground and swing on the swings!
