I have not written a poem for the PAD Challenge as I was performing at SpeakEasy and then out at Stanza followed by a weekend away *which was supposed to include a poetry workshop and a performance – long story I will link to that post when I have written it – so here is the PAD Challenge update and later on I will plug into the poetry machine and create!
2013 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 14
Two weeks! We’ve made it two weeks into the challenge. I don’t know why I ever doubt it, but this month is flying by as it usually does.
For today’s prompt, write an exploration poem. Maybe you’re exploring a new land, the depths of quarks, outer space, the mind, the soul, etc. Your call. In fact, it could be said that most poems are an exploration of one sort or another. So get at it.

2013 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 15
After we finish today’s poem, we’ll have crossed the half-way point in this challenge. Congratulations for making it this far! It’s all downhill from here, right?
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “What (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles might include: “What Luck,” “What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas,” “Whatever You Say,” and so on.
