Draft of the Week, #13

My computer travails continue, but my laptop’s working for the time being, long enough for me to complete a draft inspired by this week’s ReadWritePoem prompt — an evocative photograph. Per my usual tendencies, I’ve taken their nudge in my own direction. This might be altogether too abstract or wordy or [insert negative adjective here], so feel free to speak up with any thoughts yea or nay — I can take it!

And, also as usual, this will only remain for a couple days:


NaPoWriMo 2.

I stopped by Arts & Letters Daily and my head almost exploded. Seriously. Have you ever been there? All that text…my brain is bleeding.


Now that I’ve decided to trail along behind the NaPoWriMo bandwagon in my own little red wheelbarrow, I’m, well, dare I admit, feeling excited, like I’m catching a wave(let) on the ground swell of anticipation rippling through the blogosphere. Which is a metaphorically messy paragraph and perhaps does not bode well….


ReadWritePoem has a post today with a few form ideas to help keep the poems flowing, and, as someone who generally doesn’t find prompts helpful, these are great — I will definitely use at least two of them.


Poems have been bubbling up of late, words, phrases — this could be just the impetus I need to get to work.
