I almost completely forgot about National Poetry Month! :gibbssmack: How could I?? :P

Every April and November, I like to (try to) participate in the Poem-A-Day (PAD) Challenge on Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides Blog on the Writer's Digest website. I get more excited about the April PAD, because it coincides with National Poetry Month. :jumpgreen:

I want to share my poetry with you guys as I write it for this challenge. Feel free to join me, and post your poems below! Let us know which prompt you have chosen. I'm going to start a list below, as Brewer posts them each day in April. For more details on the prompts, click the above link to check out his blog.

April Poem-A-Day Challenge Prompts

April 1st: Write a reminiscing poem.
April 2nd: Write a "not today" poem.
April 3rd: Take the phrase "____ of Love," fill in the blank, make it the title of your poem, and write the poem.
April 4th: Two For Tuesday: Write a beginning poem, and/or write an ending poem.
April 5th: Pick an element (like from the periodic table), make it the title of your poem, and write the poem.
April 6th: Write a poem about a sound.
April 7th: Write a discovery poem.
April 8th: Write a panic poem.
April 9th: Take the phrase “So (blank),” fill in the blank, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.
April 10th: Write a travel poem.
April 11th: Two for Tuesday -
Write a sonnet. I know some folks will say a writing a form is not a prompt, but I often use forms to prompt me into poems. And I know that some folks will say they hate traditional forms.
Write an anti-form poem. Write about your dislike of poetic forms. Let it all out.
April 12th: Write a guilty poem.
April 13th: Write a family poem.
April 14th: Pick a popular saying and make that the title of your poem, then, write the poem.
April 15th: Write a "one time" poem
April 16th: take the phrase “(blank) System,” fill in the blank, make it the title of your poem, write your poem.
April 17th: Write a dance poem.
April 18th: Two for Tuesday - Write a "life" poem, and/or Write a "death" poem.

Actually the 3rd and 5th would make good story challenges...particularly the 5th it could be Abby centric.

You could issue a challenge at the end of the month and just make it "write a story on one of the PAD prompts. Lots of variety, I could see thaf being a winner!

I'm not much for writing poetry but I could see trying to write a story for the prompts. I could probably think of something for a few of the prompts.

I might do a National Poetry Month Challenge at the end of April, when the prompt list is complete. It would be fun!

Now... how about I actually write some poetry this month? LOL. It's been forever since I've written a poem.

I seem to either write poetry or fiction! Weird but true. Poetry being more likely when I'm depressed, so tbh, not having written any poetry in several years = actually a good sign...
