OctPoWriMo Day 29

  I have a thing for trains and railroad tracks. They always make me think of stories of hobos and the times as a child I wished I could jump on a train and ride away.

OctPoWriMo Day 28

Today was a rollercoaster of emotions. Something happened this morning that made me so angry and it was difficult for me to come out of that. When I finally did it was like I crashed and then cried at the drop of a hat. Part of it is I'm tired, part is the stress and anxiety of everything going on right now in my life and in the world. This afternoon and evening was better.

OctPoWriMo Day 27

I drew a blank for today so I decided to get some inspiration from one of my old favorites, Public Domain Pictures. Of course I chuckled when I discovered who did this photo, George Hodan. He is one of my favorites on their site. Nine times out of ten if I like a photo it ends up being his. This one I found to be quite magical.

Poetry Prompts:

Even though I have shared some prompts that were in the same line as magical, I didn't actually have a prompt with the main theme as magical/magic. I know not all of you celebrate Oct. 31st. So you can choose to write about whatever form of magic you choose or not. Write for ten minutes about Halloween, or Samhain, a special time in your life, a special costume/celebration/get together. What does the day mean to you? Do you believe it is when the veil between worlds is the thinnest and you can say goodbye to loved ones who have passed in the previous year? Do you think it is just a silly holiday that has been over commercialized? Do you believe it is to be avoided at all costs? Every belief is valid. Every belief matters.

Word Prompts:

Magic
Holidays/Holy Days
Ancestors
childhood
special
veil
between
Midnight

OctPoWriMo Day 26

I just realized that with the ending of October, NaNoWriMo is going to begin. And yes, I'm wanting to participate this year. Looks like my days just got even busier as I need to quickly begin planning what I'll be writing. 

Do you have plans for when OctPoWriMo is over, are there other poetry challenges you'll be participating in?

Poetry Prompts: 

When I was young, I was singled out because of my red hair. Back then I didn't like being different. All I wanted was to be normal. It didn't take long for me to realize I actually liked being different and I never wanted to be normal again. What in your life made you different or the same? Write for ten minutes about being different or the same. What is normal anyway?

Word Prompts:

Different
Same
Normal
Abnormal (I'm hearing Abby normal in my head. LOL!)

OctPoWriMo Day 25

It has been an interesting day. I worked on posts for my Patreon and set some new goals for myself. I'm not going to let my car issues get me down. I'm tired of allowing set backs to get in the way of things I want in my life. If not now, when? 

Wow... we are in the last week of OctPoWriMo! You can do it!

Art by MDragonwillow


Poetry Prompts: 

You know I like to break the rules of poetry, yes it is wonderful to try new poetry types to expand what we know about words and how they fall to the page, but, it is time to create a poem type of your own. Write for ten minutes about breaking the rules, how does it make you feel about breaking rules, is it exciting or anxiety making? 

Word Prompts:

Stretch
Disorder
Chaos
Expand
Anarchy

Poetry Type:

Really, I hope you give it a shot and create your own poetry form.

OctPoWriMo Day 18

Today I took time to rest and process feelings that were weighing heavy on me. Lately, the best way I know of processing my feelings is through painting. It is what works for me. 

I spent the afternoon and evening on this. I mostly used my fingers to paint and painted my hand and pressed down for the handprint. All of the hearts that I drew, reminded me that it always comes back to love and healing my heart.
