NAPOWRIMO day #8 “Free Write”

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…!!! 🙂

  1. Here is my take on yesterday’s “what if” prompt at Poetic Asides:

    Rob, thanks for letting us post here on a daily basis. I’m having a blast writing poems and reading the many fine poems that others are writing.

  2. For Poetic Asides prompt – Celebration – I had something to reeeally celebrate! 🙂

  3. Paying it forward: = “Talisman”

  4. I’m actually not too unhappy with today’s effort. That may not mean anything with respect to quality, but it was nearly as fun as the wordle one from a few days ago.

  5. Forgot to post yesterday’s poem, sorry, but here is today’s. A kind of weird one, but fun. Peace to all, Amy

  6. Hello, all…
    Cannot believe it’s DAY EIGHT already…and that I’ve been able to keep up with all you prolific writers out there with at least one poem a day! That alone is reason to celebrate! But that is not the “celebrate” poem I wrote for Poetic Asides today (prompt was to write a “ready to celebrate” poem). Here’s my poem:

    Now…to get busy reading all that you have posted, as well!

  7. My Day 7

    My Day 6

    Sorry to lump them all in here, but I forgot to post here. Sorry, guys, and thanks to Viv for helping assuage my guilt! Amy

  8. DAY PA PAD PROMPT – Poem about getting ready to celebrate… Have a few…
