OctPoWriMo Day 30

Thursday I had fun creating characters for the story I'll be working on for NaNoWriMo in November. I'm hoping to have a breakthrough like I did a couple of years ago when I wrote that story in less than two weeks and went on to write eight more stories over the next several months. I had an amazing breakthrough during that time period and got to a point I was writing about twenty thousand words a day. I didn't even know that was possible, let alone that I'd ever be able to accomplish it myself. I'm excited to see what will happen this time.

  2. A poem about my frustrations with attempting to get disability payments.

    I don't know if I'm going to attempt NaNoWriMo or not. The only genre I'm able to write for NaNoWrimo without wanting to douse it in acid and fire it into the sun afterwards is erotica, and I don't know if I'm in the mood to write erotica. I'm already working on a weird fiction/paranormal/steampunk fantasy story, but trying to do it NaNoWriMo style would just ruin it. Generally speaking, I don't write well that way.

    1. I understand, about not being in the right frame of mind for NaNo, many times I've been there. Goodluck with the story you're working on.

    1. I love being able to inspire other poets to play with their words and I'm happy you found inspiration in my prompts. I will be posting Poetry and Prompts weekly starting on Wednesday, Nov. 4th. I already posted the first one on my Patreon that will go public on the 4th. It is a little different but people will still be able to access regardless of whether they are a patron or not, patrons will just have first access.

  10. Day 30, #OctPoWriMo2020

    Thank you Morgan for all the amazing prompts and poetry forms. Thank you all for sharing your wonderful work here . Keep smiling and writing always!

    Now, for the theme today, I am using the Acrostic form to describe an innate frame of mind that I have no matter what the situation is in life. This defines me and my identity.
