Sunday morning and I’m baking bread. Which is a minor miracle around this house with the way things go askew.

Which leads to today’s prompting …

Sept 30th’s prompt is “it was her own lack of control ”.

Today’s sample of “lack of control” poetry …

Interstate 84 by Ariel

I have compiled my prompts for October. I had a lot of fun with it – being the month before Halloween; lots of monsters and suspense and possibilities for scares and whimsey.

You can get my Pinterest October list here.

If you appreciate what I do, please consider being one of my Patrons on  Patreon.

Looking for patrons so I will have the funds to continue offering this blog – Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators to get paid.

For patrons, Patreon is a way to join your favorite creator’s community and pay them for making the stuff you love. By supporting a creator with a few bucks per month, your favorite creators can make a living doing what they do best (for me – that’s poetry) because of you! And you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts. 

My archive of poetry prompts is here.

You know I’m all about the prompts!
