A Wordling Suggestion
April is National Poetry Month. To those of us who write poetry, that can also mean NaPoWriMo…thirty days in which to write a poem a day. I have been thinking about doing a prompt on this site for those thirty days in April. I really like wordles (even though they occasionally frustrate the hell out of me). Just a list of bare disparate words that the writer uses to write whatever he/she might find in the words themselves. So, here’s my suggestion:
I will put up a list of seven to ten words every three days. You, the writer/poet can use any or all of the words as inspiration for three days (different ones each day, or the same ones through all three days). I’ve done it both ways and it is a very interesting exercise. You are free to use whatever form or poetic device you choose in writing your poems, and are also free to change the tense or form of any of the words. On the fourth day, I will put up a new list (all of them gathered from poems I’ve written on my Soul’s Music site). When finished, each day, you can post the title and your URL in the comments section below.
Thanks for the response, it is very encouraging. First prompt will go up very early Tuesday morning April 1, probably about 12:30am.
