NAPOWRIMO day #11 “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…!!! 🙂

  2. Oh, I’m already making a mess with days and poems. So, here is one I wrote last night (when it was like morning in the States) and I post this morning (which will be night in the US)… confusing 🙂 But delightful.

  6. This is a little one for the first Bigtent prompt. Ain’t it great not to have to wait for Friday to post!

  7. This was for the Day 10 of April PAD, but I went out of town and didn’t get to post it. So anyway, here it is, and I hope to post another for today’s prompt later on. 🙂

  8. Just wrote a little senyru for Poetic Asides day 11 prompt. Now it’s time to move away from the computer, get dressed, and get busy with real life stuff! 😉 Be back later to read!!!

  9. Today’s poem is a haiku named “Napoleon Ave”

  10. Oh, a slice of the old days, from the Poetic Asides prompt, “Maybe ____.”
    Back to read after dinner! Peace, Amy

  11. I think my poem today speaks for itself…but felt I should say that I recognize that, though it counts as a “poem for the day”, it was something I threw together in a minute or two to beat the deadline. Hopefully tomorrow will bring new life and inspiration…and a little extra breathing room! I’ll have to catch up on reading, later. Happy Day 11, everyone! ~Paula

    Poetic Asides – Day 11 prompt: “Maybe…”
