NaBloPoMo: Play

This month’s theme for NaBloPoMo at BlogHer is “Play”. The writing prompts so far have included questions along the lines of “Who Did You Play With as a Child?” and “What Was a Favorite Childhood Toy?”

I’ve been having a few playful days recently. I’ve been keeping up with my writing; more than I used to. And it feels really great. The more I write, the more I want to write. It often brings to mind my favorite quote from Isaac Asimov: “I write for the same reason I breathe: Because if I didn’t, I would die.”

For me, writing … read the rest. . .

NaBloPoMo Prompt: POEM

Today’s prompt from is “Which poet do you wish was also a blogger?”

I’d have to say… I’m not sure. Because I don’t read tons of poetry, so I’m not well-versed (pardon the pun) with poetic artists.

But I keep thinking of one. A man who’s writing style is so glorious, so creative, so inclusive and amazing that if he were a daily blogger, I’m pretty sure I’d be speaking in rhyme far more often than I do.

As I’ve often blogged about her, she’s instilled my love of words. I’m fairly certain that I recognized poetry and prose long before I “knew” anything about them.

I can’t be sure that I correctly recall the first poem I ever memorized, but The Itsy Bitsy Spider comes to mind. That, and perhaps any rhyme from Winnie the Pooh.

And Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss rocks! … read the rest. . .

NaBloPoMo in April

This is not to be confused with my own personal NaNoWriMo for April, in which I’ve committed to adding 50,000 words to the first novel in my and Megan’s nine-book series.

As if that’s not enough, I’ve once again committed through BlogHer to join NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month – every month!) for April.

I guess that’s not really a big deal, since I’ve been posting every day for the last seven months. But April’s theme intrigues me.


I don’t typically take writing prompts from BlogHer. They’re only there if you don’t know what to write… and when do … read the rest. . .
