Day 27 of 30 in our 2018 NaNoWriMo & November Poem-A-Day (NovPAD) challenges. Only 4 days left of the writing challenges …

Today is Giving Tuesday; a holiday to practice charity. For today’s prompt, think about your favorite charity & write a poem about it.

For 2018 PAD Challenge, Today is the last Two-For-Tuesday prompt (until April’s Poem-A-Day challenge):

  1. write a shaky poem
  2. write a sturdy poem.

Poetry Potion’s Poem-A-Day prompt today is “tea with my ancestors”.

The NaNoWriMo prompt calendar offers another quote for today – “Don’t forget – editing is for December”. I am checking my word count total today …

Yep – I’m all about the prompts!

Yesterday’s excursion has left me exhausted today and everything going sideways … Even the sky is grumbling loudly. (And scaring my Frodo)  ButI found some good news on Facebook …

I got news that the PlatChal anthology-On The Platform Waiting is to be released. This volume contains my two poems Carbon & Following’s areally cool video announcing it but I am having trouble opening and attaching it. (see …sideways!)

So here’s the still ad instead!
