Writing Prompt for Sunday 11/27/16

Your Daily Writing Prompt

Poetry Writing Prompts

This week’s prompts focus on expanding your poetry repertoire. Experimenting with different forms of poetry can be fun and a great way to express yourself.

When I’m distraught, my default form of writing becomes poetry that I write by hand. For some reason, writing by hand and using a pen and paper makes the energy transference from a brain to the paper more real for me.

For this week, I recommend writing by hand only.

Today’s Writing Prompt

Today I want you to write a portrait poem. Think of someone you want to write about and write a poem about them.  Here are some examples of portrait poems. You may even be able to knock out a bunch of them. You might even get addicted. Which is why I’ve created our new 12-Step Program for Poetry Addicts.

I’d love to read your portrait poems!

You can post your daily writing exercises in the comments section of the blog post if you’d like or you can post on our Facebook group. Or you can keep them to yourself. It’s all fine with me.

Go forth and write,
