NaPoWriMo: Day2

Okay, we’ve broken silence. I believe that any time we write, be that a poem, prose, essay, or even a shopping list, we are telling some small piece of our story. Today’s challenge is to write about something we have never written about before: a secret, a childhood fear, something avoided or purposely ignored. Something we have left unwritten.

Music is inspiration.

This is a journey and we’ve already taken the first step.

  1. Perfect musical inspiration!

    Seeing as you are the one who showed me how much music can do for writing inspiration, that’s a hell of a compliment. Thank you Marsha. Hope you enjoy the month.

    Can’t write along with you this month, but I’ll enjoy reading the prompts. Best to you.

    Sorry to hear that Sabra, but will look forward to your comments if you have the time,

    No offense intended, it’s that rebel thing in me:



  4. Happy to see the prompt this morning, Elizabeth. I have a start on something, but am visiting Thyra in DC. Perhaps I’ll leave it sit for now, and get back to it this evening. We are off to see some cherry blossoms soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh, cherry blossoms. Take a ton of pictures and then perhaps you could let me play with a few (hint,hint)? Hope you don’t mind, but I’m planning to incorporate the Whirl words for tomorrow. I don’t want to skip an entire month of them, so hope I’m not stepping on anyone’s toes. Let me know if I am, please. Take whatever time you need, it’s so good to see you writing again.



    • It’s fine to use the Whirl words. Not a big deal at all, but a good idea. I’m also providing 6 word Wednesdays. Maybe I’ll use your six words, if that’s okay?

      As my family continues to sleep, and it is raining outside, I put off our journey to the National Mall. We’ll head out after lunch. It gave me the opportunity to finish my poem for today. When I get pictures, you will be more than welcome to manipulate them. I love what you create.

      Here’s my piece:

      Thank you Brenda, I didn’t want to miss the wordles. They have come to mean a great deal to me. And I will be looking forward to seeing the pics. Your poem touched me deeply and gave me well needed inspiration. Thank you, and of course you can use them, lol,

  7. I have saved today’s prompt for a more inspired day. Here is at least the semblance of a poem for day 2:

    I liked your poem Viv. And I’m glad you allowed us to see and read it. Prompts are ever only suggestions, meant to get you thinking. Remember, there are no hard and fast rules. We do what we can and leave the rest, and that is freedom.

    Hi Elizabeth, I will back later with something. Today is a busy day for me.

    Hello — just got off work. I saw the words early this morning and they were dancing in my head all morning. Finally got them to slow down long enough to fall into place.

    I’m sorry I didn’t get around to visiting/reading yesterday. Internet is out at my apartment so I rely on my phone. Or going–with my laptop–to wherever there’s wi-fi. Or, like now, before I leave work for the day. I hope to read later. Meanwhile — Day #2 is in the books. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks Paula. We’ve all been through the computer down glitches at one time or another. I was there a year ago when we got hit with lightning. I did NaPo from my daughter’s computer. Not fun, but we deal the best we can. Glad for the honesty and courage in your poem. Although we miss your comments, we do understand.



  11. Good evening, Elizabeth. I must say this was a challenging prompt. My mind whirled all day with ideas and thoughts … what to write, what to write?? I thought a little “rant” was in order to validate my situation(s). It flowed just like this:

    Thank you, again, for the gentle push, kind words and wisdom that only you can inspire in me.
