Weekend Wrap-up: April 17

Wow. Sixteen poems so far. Has it been difficult? Yes and no. Sometimes the prompts from NaPoWriMo seem a bit too specific, but they are just suggestions and I have taken some liberties with them. A few of them I knocked out fairly quick, most took a bit of brainwork.

Here are the first 2 weeks. If you have a moment you can read them on Medium or on my Poem Page: National Poetry Writing Month

NaPoWriMo : Day 7 – Poem with strict syllables 😀
NaPoWriMo : Day 6 – Poem based on line from a book 🤔

NaPoWriMo : Day 5 – Imitation 🤔
NaPoWriMo : Day 4 – Odd transitional spaces (think Escher)  🤔
NaPoWriMo : Day 3 – Use of random words to inspire 🤔
NaPoWriMo : Day 2 – The road not taken 🤔
NaPoWriMo : Day 1 – April fools 😀

NaPoWriMo: Day 14 Name Origins 😀
NaPoWriMo: Day 13 A news story you wish to see 😀🤔
NaPoWriMo: Day 12 Past and Future 😀🤔
NaPoWriMo: Day 11 Letter from the Cat 😀
NaPoWriMo Day 10: Junk Drawers 😀🤔
NaPoWriMo Day 9: A to-do list 😀
NaPoWriMo Day 8: A monologue from a deceased person 🤔

Weekend Wrap-up: April 10

What the heck happened to Music Monday? Not finished my composition yet (and I was writing a poem). What the heck happened to Tuesday Thoughts? I had a post ready but I was writing a poem. What the heck happened to Weird Wednesday? Ok you get the idea. so let’s catch up:

Book news: I decided on a new cover design for my book, The Knot at the End of the Rope. I’m pleased at how it turned out. I was going for a 50s/60s sci-fi vibe, and I think I nailed it.

Look for a $0.99 sale April 15

Nine days of poems (not counting today). You can catch up with them all here: National Poetry Writing Month

Free Book Friday (and Book News): April 9 – A few new free book promos

What exactly is love? – A short post but Shruba tackles a subject for the ages
