I gave a hint at this earlier on Twitter; The Oct 18th’s prompt is “scare yourself”
If you need help – here is 13 ways.
When I wrote checklist: fresh applesauce, I ended up scaring myself. It was during 2017’s NaPoWriMo – and I wanted to combine all three PAD challenge prompts that day into a single poem, one of them being “applesauce”. So I thought I could use the checklist form to create a recipe poem – I make my own applesauce sometimes from my apple trees – and I figured it would be easy to add in some alliteration & assonance. Started playing with the “P” sounds – and then my muse started playing with the knives – and, well, this happened …
Hope you enjoyed it!.
So November is coming up fast; I really look forward to the November Poem-A-Day challenges that get offered Some years I have done as many as seven (which means seven different poems a day) but my minimum is at least three. I also, the past 4 years, been participating in the NaNoWriMo Challenge.
Last year, like other PAD months (Aprils’ & Novembers’) I posted the sundry links every day on my blog … which meant a late posting because “they” had to post their prompts first before I could share the link.
But now I have been doing my own Poem-A-Day prompts …
