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

Today is  National Computer Security Day / National Computer Security Day  For today’s prompt, “steps to take for protection”.

For 2018 PAD Challenge, the prompt is to “one more (blank)”  If you have been doing the November Poem A Day Challenge – once midnight flips over into December, you finally have permission to go back and edit your November poems. And if you are participating in Brewer’s PAD Chapbook Challenge, the submission info is on the Guidelines page.

Poetry Potion’s Poem-A-Day prompt is ““my childhood home”

The NaNoWriMo prompt calendar today is “Give it your best! Win or lose, tomorrow you can hit snooze.!”

My final word count this year is 52,641.  If you are doing NaNoWriMo, be sure to validate your word count on the NaNoWriMo site by midnight. I didn’t last year and had a heck of a time claiming my win, I am trying to access the NaNo Word Count Validator to validate mine – but there seems to be a glitch going; I get Page Not Found as I try to access it. So … sooner is better than later!

Yep – I’m all about the prompts!


I need to head downtown;  it’s the Final Friday of November which means a busy night as CC Willow. I finished a piece yesterday for tonight’s group show (I was challenged with a diamond-shaped frame) and I need to submit it and set up my pop-up display. The pop-up will be fairly minimal, ankles still hurting so I can’t bring most of my display equipment. Times like these I wish I could afford a taxi.

And if you want to buy holiday gifts with poetry or art on it (and support me as a small business)nology, I have the following links for you.

If you want to see my marketing “ads” where I occasionally highlight a product or piece – follow me on Facebook at NorthWest poet Ariel& CC Willow Art.
