NAPOWRIMO day #25 “Free Write”

T -5 and counting down!!!

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…!!! 🙂

    Thank you to all who have visited, and commented. I have enjoyed visiting reading and meeting so many voices new to me. I will be continuing here at writers island…..however I am living or at least written proof that approximately. 1000 years of schooling give or take and approximately the same hours of analysis cannot help me FIGURE OUT HOW TO PROPERLY LINK MY POST TO MY SITE,! I AM THINKING OF BEGINNING A CONTEST FOR THE BRAVE SOUL EHO CAN WALK ME THROUGH THIS….AS CHARLIE BROWN WOULD SAY ARRRRGGGGG,!!
    Happy poeming all!

      HELLO PEARL — Here is a link to one of your poems done properly… Falling

      What you are trying to create is called a “hyperlink” Pearl. CLICK HERE and you can learn how… Be patient and you will be able to do it… 🙂

      NOTE: to get the http:// code string required to create the hyperlink, just click on the title of any of your poems, look in the ‘address box’ at the top of the page, and the entire http:// code string will be available. Copy it completely and exactly, CHANGING NOTHING. That is what you insert in the hyperlink as shown in the tutorial to which I have directed you. You can do this Pearl… 🙂

  6. I was just introduced to a new-to-me comic poetry form — macaronic verse — and had to try it right away. I combined it with my favorite form — the limerick — and the result is my Macaronic Limerick.

  7. I never seem to get around to posting what I write in any sort of timely fashion, but anyway, here’s one I started Saturday and polished up a bit today:


  8. <a hre=""/Falling

    If code works there will be a Falling In Love with “Flaubert” and Brenda on my site !

  9. I’m out of evaporated water. Can’t even think of the right phrasing for that much less much else right now. Push for today:

  10. Poem 3. In the Twinkling
    Poem 4. In the Arms of Nitrous. Oxide

  11. Root canal today….playing catch up with myself…

    Last two ( PA PROMPT DAY 25 FALLING)

    Poem 5. All Fall. ….. Remember the joy of All fall down!”
    Poem 6′ The Fall…. As the one worn on some heads

    And now going to read until I fall asleep!
