Day 14 of 30 in our 2018 NaNoWriMo & November Poem-A-Day (NovPAD) challenges.

Two weeks in; two more to go!

Today is World Diabetes Day. Typically I avoid the “diseases”prompts-but this one is so emblematic of today’s climate. Today’s prompt is “managing”.

Over at 2018 PAD Challenge, Day 14’s prompts is to write a hungry poem.

Poetry Potion’s Poem-A-Day Challenge has something a little different for us today; their prompt is to the blind man next door.

For NaPoWriMo Calendar today advises “If the plot isn’t working, add urgency and desperation. Kill somebody”

Have fun writing …
