NaPoWriMo Prompt – And now for today’s prompt (optional, as always): Today I challenge you to write an abecedarian poem – a poem with a structure derived from the alphabet. There are a couple of ways of doing this. You could write a poem of 26 words, in which each word begins with a successive letter of the alphabet. You could write a poem of 26 lines, where each line begins with a successive letter. Or finally, if you’d prefer to narrow your focus, perhaps you could write a poem which focuses on a few letters, using words that repeat them.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Okay three years ago in this very room, I wrote an abecedarian. It took several hours and I swore never again. To prevent coprolalia I stuck to ABC. I almost claimed clinomania to avoid the prompt completely. But I finally was able to avoid catalectic failure with this handy webpage. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to drink some water to make sure my brain isn’t smoldering.
