NaPoWriMo – Day 6




Day Six

On April 6, 2014

Welcome back for Day Six of NaPoWriMo. Yesterday’s prompt was a bit of a doozy, so I’ve something much more simple lined up for today.

We got rather complicated with yesterday’s prompt, so today’s is much simpler. Take a good look outside your window. Spend a minute or so jotting down all the nouns you see outside. Tree. Car. Bus. Dog. Then spend a minute or so writing down all the colors you see. Finally, think about taking place outside. Is the wind blowing? “Blow.” Is someone walking their dog? “Walk.” Spend a minute or so writing down these verbs. Now you’ve got a whole list of words from which to build a poem, mixing and matching as you go. Happy writing!



Delighted that I have FINALLY caught up with the first week of NaPoWriMo!

I found this harder than the golden shovel task of yesterday. I have got there – I question the strength of the poem, still – here is an extract all the same:



Walking in purple

through blue

over grey roads, across kerbstones.

Magnolia dreams seep into your dark mind.
