Still trying to catch up from last week’s detour – but today makes the Two Week Mark for my four November challeges: Writer’s NovPAD, Poetry Potion’s Poem-A-Day, National Novel Writing Month, and my personal Zentangle-A-Day. I think any one participating in a November challenge should get real-time points for just sticking with it! Tomorrow makes our half-way point …
My hardest challenge, so far, has been the NaNoWriMo; with the poems & art – once I drawn them for the day, I AM DONE (for that day at least). The Novel still has some to go. And that mindset makes it more difficult. Ah well, time to change the mindset – There’s still most of November left – And this is only a first draft so no need to be perfect, just STARTED.
Hope you are having good luck with your persuits!
Now for the prompts …
AS it is Tuesday, Writer’s Digest’s NovPAD has two (that is 2) prompts or TwoFerTuesday. I’m just going to paste them here as I really like the reasons Brewer picked them for today …
- Write a sonnet or other traditional form poem. I specifically mention the sonnet, because it’s day 14 and the sonnet traditionally has 14 lines. But any other traditional form (villanelle, triolet, sestina, etc.) would work as well.
- Write an anti-sonnet or other traditional form poem. If you’re anti-form, good news! You can vent about it in a poem–or just write a poem that attacks form and structure of any kind (even beyond poetics). Anarchy poems?
Poetry Potion’s PAD is “when I see my mother …”
Mia Botha’s prompt for Day 14 is “the test results“.
NaNoWriMo‘s prompt/suggesstion for us NANOnites is to “add a scene where your protanganist and antagonist share a meal.”
Played with triadz and it’s auras. I do love shapes reminescent of leaves! And fall colors – especially in the fall. It’s been blustery lately and many trees are now bare – so the ground very much looks like today’s zentangle …
