NaPoWriMo Prompt Day 21 – Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that incorporates overheard speech. It could be something you’ve heard on the radio, or a phrase you remember from your childhood, even something you overheard a coworker say in the break room! Use the overheard speech as a springboard from which to launch your poem. Your poem could comment directly on the overheard phrase or simply use it as illustration or tone-setting material.

Welcome back to day 21 of NaPoWriMo. Okay so we can’t quite stick a fork into April. There is one more week until we’re done, but I love that line. Plus once the chicken was done cooking today, I had to pull it apart with a fork to serve. I enjoy cooking in the crockpot, it makes the house smell yummy all day. And any meal I don’t need to use a knife works for me, too.

NaPoWriMo Prompt Day 19 – Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that recounts a creation myth. It doesn’t have to be an existing creation myth, or even recount how all of creation came to be. It could be, for example, your own take on the creation of ball-point pens, or the discovery of knitting. Your myth can be as big or small as you would like, as serious or silly as you make it.

Welcome back to day 19 of NaPoWriMo aka my dad’s birthday. Is it really a myth – life BEFORE television. My grandparents didn’t get a TV set until my dad was in high school. And did you know, the world came across in black and white?! As I was thinking of myths, I remembered a story Rachael said when her class was reading To Kill a Mockingbird back in high school. One of her classmates wanted to know why Scout kept asking her dad so many questions; why didn’t she just google it? Ummm…yeah the world before television and computers may be a myth after all.
