NAPOWRIMO day #7 “Free Write”

1 week now complete, and you’re gaining momentum — keep going!

During this month of April, which is National Poetry Writing Month (NAPOWRIMO), Writer’s Island will NOT be posting our regular weekly prompts. Our regular weekly prompts will resume Saturday, May 7th.

Instead, this is a “FREE WRITE” day, as will each day be in April. Writer’s Island is NOT suggesting a daily writing prompt during NAPOWRIMO. Please feel free to post a link here in the comments section to whatever poem or poems you may have written today.

Just as this post did today, each day of NAPOWRIMO, the “Free Write” post will open at 12:01 AM US Eastern Daylight Time. The current and the prior day’s post will remain visible on the main blog page. You can access earlier NAPOWRIMO days by selecting April in the “Past Prompts” drop down in right side bar.

Whether you are following specific daily NAPOWRIMO prompts of some sort, or just writing a poem each day (or most/some days) of NAPOWRIMO – please post a link to your poems here. At this time, I know • Poetic Asides and • Big Tent Poetry will be offering prompts for each day. But you don’t need prompts to write a poem each day.

If you wish, please consider Writer’s Island your NAPOWRIMO 2011 ‘linking hub’. Just enter your name and email address in the comments heading, and the URL of whatever poem you’ve written for that day, in the comment box. Nothing else needs to be written in the comment box if you don’t want to.

As always, if you are a first time participant, your first entry will be moderated – after your first time, there will be no more moderating. April is NAPOWRIMO – so poem away and enter your links here. Have fun…!!! 🙂

  2. Here’s my poem for today, to a prompt from Poetic Asides from a couple of days ago:

  3. I did the Day 7 April P-A-D Prompt: “What if…” Might try the NaPoWriMo challenge a little later. 🙂 Now off to read a few before running errands.

  4. Day Seven…written for Poetic Asides prompt: “What if…” and Theme Thursday’s prompt: face.

    I’ll be back to read and enjoy your posts. 🙂

  5. Thanks very much for allowing me to post this pair of haiku: Face Time.

  6. Back with another poem today — hope that’s okay. It’s my first Acrostic Limerick: ELOPE (Acrostic Limerick)

  7. Okay, I went back to the NaPoWriMo prompt for Day 7 and gave it a shot. I think I included everything except the game of chance. 😉 Let me know what you think.

  8. My 3rd poem for this month. Responding to a prompt in Big Tent Poetry — something that no longer exists. Requiem to my lost creativity!

  9. “The Pier” is based on a true event.


    I am now caught up!
    Looking forward to this new adventure!!!
    Having enjoyed the NaNoWriMo Challenge in November and actually getting a novel based on poems I was writing in the November Poetic Asides Challenge I was delighted to find that this site existed. What a delightful island!!! I’d like to thank Amy for directing me to another island in the sun.

  11. Posted yesterday from an airport. I lacked the patience to link from places given the cruddy network, but…
