NaPoWriMo: Day 18

I am participating in National Poetry Writing Month, where the goal is to write one poem a day for 30 days. During the month of April, I will be using the writing prompts at ReadWritePoem.org and posting the results.


Day eighteen prompt (word salad)


Remember your 50 words? Haul them out, we’re going to mix up a little word salad! The recipe is easy: cut up your list (you should have 50 bite-sized pieces), place the pieces in a bowl, pull out single words or handfuls to taste, arrange on the page.


Variations: garnishes (modifiers) such as “as” “and” “the” “I” etc. … may be added; arrange in couplets; use all of your ingredients to write a poem using your own recipe.

Anderson Cooper Made Me Join

Always on the cutting edge of fashionably late, I finally joined Twitter. Well, after Anderson Cooper asked me very nicely. Not personally, you understand: but he DID ask me and millions of other viewers of Anderson Cooper 360 this week. Apparently, there was a contest between CNN breaking news and Ashton Kutcher. There were mosquito nets involved. And a charity. And who among us could say no to Anderson when he makes the sad face?

Day nineteen prompt (if she were really your friend)


Write about the blessing that is a true friend or the heartache that comes from losing one. Tell us how you are a good friend (or where you fall short). Have you ever betrayed a friend or been disappointed by a friend? Have you ever slept with a friend? Did you marry a friend? Describe one of your actual friends. An old friend. A new friend. An imaginary friend. Remember an adventure you took with a friend or one you’d like to plan. What is it about friendship that we seek so consistently throughout our lives? Think of the ways in which we become friends with people. Think about how we lose touch.
