Stuck On Repeat

How many of you are old enough to remember turntables? Remember when you’d get a scratch or a single small hair or something and then the needle would catch on it and repeat the same phrase over and over until you moved the arm? That’s what today’s NaPoWriMo prompt reminded me...

Message From A Poem

Blogging A to Z Challenge: letter M NaPoWriMo: A poem that addresses itself or some aspect of itself. I’m not sure if I met the prompt’s guidelines but I feel I covered the IDEA of the prompt. Hope you like it. I wrote a Minute Poem, a 12-line poem consisting of...

What Really Happened In London

I apologize for the late post but better late than never. Short and quick today. Blogging A to Z Challenge: letter L; NaPoWriMo challenge: write a dialogue poem. Hopefully, that’s self-explanatory. Hope you like my response. (If you haven’t guessed, I’m a big fan of tongue-in-cheek poetry.) xo Jesi   Libellous...

Happy Accidents

So, I got my hands on a copy of Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman today. I’ll let you know what I think when I’m done. Actually, it was kind of an accident I think. I had only just this weekend put my name on the hold list for this book and...

I Need A Break

I am so tired today. Everything is too loud, too noisy, too bright, too something. I’m glad I only have to deal with one challenge today. Because I’m not sure my brain could deal with the stress. Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is to write descriptive prose then cut out all the unnecessary...

Beware The Judgement Of The Muse

I will not lie. Today’s NaPoWriMo challenge gave me a headache. But, I did learn something. Sappho was one crazy poetic freak of nature. The Muse created her to drive the rest of us insane. We had to write a Sapphic poem today. It has a strict meter (not iamb, but...

Oh, The Irony

In case you are wondering, my head does feel better today. The headache is now just a small throb that I only feel if I move too fast. So, I’m going to move slow and take it easy today. And it’s a good thing because today’s challenges made me stop and...

A Dedication To A Friend

I’m cutting right through to the chase today. Allergies have cursed me with the mother of all allergy curses, the migraine. So, here is my Blogging A to Z (letter H) and NaPoWriMo response (write a calligram-a visual poem). This is dedicated to my very lovely, sweet friend Lizzi whom I...

Gee, She Apologized!

I’m really sorry. Sometimes you just can’t resist going with the obvious. It’s just too easy. Someone has to do it. Today’s Blogging A to Z ¬†letter is G (if you haven’t been keeping up). I actually had to think about this one because today’s NaPoWriMo is to write a palinode....

That Was F’ing Fun

Sorry. I had to do it.   You see, today is F day on Blogging A to Z. And this one took some tongue in cheek thinking. Because NaPoWriMo decided to have us write about money today. So, from me to you, a little financial advice. (see what I did there?)...
