Day 18 of 30 in our 2018 NaNoWriMo & November Poem-A-Day (NovPAD) challenges.

Today’s holidays are IMickey Mouse Day& National Princess Day, You may find this hard to believe, but as a kid, I had Disney’s Cinderella memorized – especially the mice’s  – Gus & Jaq – lines. Today Nov 18, let’s have “Cinderelly’s friends” as our prompt.

2018 PAD Challenge Day 18 prompt is to pick a child’s toy, make that the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

Day 18 for Poetry Potion’s Poem-A-Day Challenge has a prompt of redesigning my world.
