NAPOWRIMO day #22 “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 • the NAPOWRIMO site and • 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. Mine is also to a bigtent prompt: this week’s selection has been a rich seam to mine.

  2. Thanks Rob, here’s my two little ducks:

    Although I will still be posting to my blog, please note I will not be around until after the Easter Holiday, see you all on Tuesday have a Happy Easter!

  3. My Good Friday post is in place.

  4. I never sleep when she’s away. Scrambled, Not Fried

  5. I think I still need another day of that splash of water in my face! 😉

    Here’s Day 21: write a “only one in the world” poem….

    I’ll be back to read!

  6. Day 22

    PA prompt ….One of a Kind


    • Pearl, I’m pasting in a sample of how you code a link to a post. But in order to make sure the code is visible as actual code (and doesn’t turn into a link) I’m deliberately leaving out one symbol at the beginning and will tell you what needs adding back. Here’s the code minus one symbol:
      a href=”LINKADDRESS”>TITLE

      In order to make that code actually work you need to add this symbol at the beginning of the code immediately before the a: <

      Then all you need to do is replace the words LINKADDRESS with the full URL of your post and replace the word TITLE with whatever title you'd like to use.

      • One more thing — that first quote doesn’t look right, for some odd reason. It should be a standard opening quote. In other words, the LINKADDRESS is enclosed by standard quotation marks.

  7. Day 22 Madeline’s limerick music still playing …..and so in response to ….
    poetic Aside prompt One of a Kind….comes


  8. Madeline’s limerick still playing on and so..another on the One of a Kind Prompt

  10. to someone who will never see

  11. I can look around and see where I am physically. I cannot feel where I am mentally. This isn’t good. It’s a start. There’s a kernel searching for the light.

  12. I’ve worked on this poem and this is a revision of a revision!

  13. It’s been crazy busy around here today and will probably be like that all weekend, but I’m determined to still get my one a day done! 😉 This is a senyru for the Poetic Asides prompt to write an “only one in the world” poem.
