So – getting ahead of the game …

Prompt for Tuesday, Oct 30 – is “can someone explain to me, in small words, why I am being assigned this mission? “.
Now today is also National Checklist Day, it would be really cool to work the prompt as a checklist poem.  What’s a checklist poem? Find out here!
My sample?
CheckList: December 11 by Ariel

I haven’t mentioned it much this month – because I have had a lot of “irons in the fire” lately – but November marks the beginning of not only NaNoWriMo – but also quite a few November Poem-A-Day (PAD) challenges.

I had a poll going and the vote is for me to share those PAD links alongside my prompts for the day! Which will include the one that started the NovPAD challenges – Robert Lee Brewers NovPAD that he hosts on Writer’s Digest’s Poetic Asides. However … it often means waiting until the challenge has posted their prompt for me to link to it for the day – not good for participants on the east side of “The Pond”.  In which case I may have to adapt – maybe by posting mine & then attaching the links after they are live (may not be until noon Pacific Standard time) or just posting the previous day’s prompt. (let me know which is your preference …)

Which gives me only two days to finish other projects …
