THIS IS NOT A POETRY GROUP
...I have created a SINGLE FOLDER for poetry called The Odd Poem . THIS FOLDER and THIS FOLDER ALONE is where you can post poetry. Alternatively it can go to our sister group My-Soul-Bleeds-Ink .
Hello guys! I am PennedinWhite, and I will be heading up some fun times and prompts from here on out (with the help of MagicalJoey). We would like to jump start the group again, and with that – a bit of a challenge for August. If you aren’t all familiar with Special Holiday Fun, we are going to introduce you in the best way possible. Each month will feature a Special Holiday prompt for you guys to gain inspiration from and give us something wonderful!
ALSO! We shall be doing some weekly prompts for you as well. These are generally going to be photo or phrase prompts, and will vary in word counts to mix up the challenge. These will be posted every week, from Sunday through Saturday. Everyone who enters this challenge will get a week long feature by the group, so we hope the incentive is high enough for you guys to really participate! Let’s see what you got!!
Nothing makes your heart pound more than ROMANCE, so for August, “Romance and Romance Awareness” will be your challenge. It can be anything you like, and as long as it is 3000 words or under, we want to read what you come up with! All the monthly challenges will be mini-contests, so we expect the best and will judge them at the beginning of the next month and offer a month long feature of the winners! Let’s get writing about that exhilaration!
All these wonderful artists need your love, so we expect you to respect them and LOVE them! No pressure! They have made some beautiful work and need the praise as much as you do yourself, so if you are so inclined and leave a pleasant comment for each awesome artist!
Each work I have presented here shows romance in a way that could prompt you to write about the topic. Whilst we do not encourage fan fiction, I have included the pictures of Elphaba, Anna and Elsa to illustrate that movies, books and television bring aspects of romance towards us and it's up to us to interpret it as we will. Sometimes we over interpret. Sometimes we miss what's right in front of us.
Write from your heart, about your heart, 3000 words or less.
Your next Weekly Challenge Prompt will be a “personification” challenge. Use one of the two given prompts below and make up a story personifying it (making it appear as a human would - thoughts, feelings, actions, looks, descriptions, characterization etc).
'Mug' and 'Key'
So. No more than 500 words, come up with the best story you can! We look forward to reading!
Let the Challenges, begin!
