Writing Prompts, OH MY!

Good morning and happy Monday (blech blech blech)!

We didn't make it through the week of poetry prompts, but that's okay. It's about persistence, write (right)?

 So at the last workshop, we discussed writing prompts. The general consensus was that the week-of-writing-things has been a fun endeavor, but the pace is a little intense for all of us. We decided to roll it back a little to one prompt/week.

The schedule will look as follows:
First week of the Month: Kirstin will host a poetry prompt for the week.
Second week of the Month: Rachael will host a prose prompt for the week.
Third week of the Month: Abbey will host a poetry prompt for the week.
Fourth week of the Month: An open discussion focused on the craft. During this week, everybody is encouraged to post something about the mechanics of writing, submitting, editing, what-have-you to share with the group.

Exceptions: November & April (NaNoWriMo & NaPoWriMo).



So your mission for this week, should you choose to accept it, to write a poem with four stanzas. The goal of this prompt is to get us to write a longer poem than we normally would. This can be in any form, just as long as there are four stanzas. It's due by Sunday at Noon. Post it to this comment thread.

Happy writing!
