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 …

  2. 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

NaNoWriMo‘s prompt/suggesstion for us NANOnites is to “add a scene where your protanganist and antagonist share a meal.

Zentangle

Played with triadz and it’s auras.  I do love Zentangle by CC Willowshapes 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 …
