January Writing Prompt Participants

I want to thank everyone who participated this month.  I ended up with 5 pages of entry links, so I’d say it was another great turn out.  Dorinda Duclos is still in the lead, along with Sarah C. and I’m excited to be able to share the new prompts with all of you tomorrow.  ❤

Exciting News! Read all about it!

Well, I’ve got some rather exciting news to tell all of you about, and I just can’t hold it in any longer. Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been rather aloof these days, and I promise you, it comes with good reason. I have been secretly working on 12 poetry books, and my […]

December Writing Prompt Participants

writing-828911__340

Happy New Year everyone!  December just seemed to whoosh right by and I’ve had a really hard time keeping up with everything.  Seems like the rest of you did too, especially by the way this month ended with very few people participating in the prompts.  However, Dorinda Duclos kept at it again, and managed to be the only one to complete every prompt this month.  I promise to try a bit harder to do more of these this month.  We’ll see how far I get!  😉  Good luck to the rest of you!  The new prompts for January can be found here:  January Writing Prompts.

A poem’s meaning

woman-41201_960_720

“A poem’s meaning is often lost among a slew of unimaginative eyes, for the true intent and heart of the poet is rarely discernible. And those who have the rare opportunity to discover the meaning of the poet’s incredulous words, are often deeply moved and sometimes even changed, by those delicately written sentiments, which often resonate and intermingle within the heart of the reader himself.” ~M

November Writing Prompt Participants

I can hardly believe it’s December!  Where did November go?  Hmmm…. that could make a good poem.  Don’t you think?  Perhaps that’ll be what I write about today.  I never know where my ideas will come from, and I’m sure most of you don’t either.

It was incredible to see such a great response this month from all of you.  I made it my job to not attempt a single one of these prompts, and chose instead to work on some other projects that I needed to get finished.  Mainly my book!  Which is coming together quite nicely and will hopefully be ready to publish in the coming months.

Congratulations to Dorinda and Michael, you were the top two participants this month, having been the only ones to complete every prompt.  That is unless I missed a few links,  Tessa was certainly very close as well.  I had a bit of a hard time keeping track, as some of you weren’t linking the posts correctly.  So this month, if you’d like to participate, please have the link on your post go directly to the prompts page.  If it just goes to my main page, I won’t receive notice of it.  Michael and Grant, I’m speaking to both of you!  Lol… 😉

Really hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I’m looking forward to Christmas myself, and all the wonderful things that come along with that.  I get to see all of my girls here for Christmas this year and I couldn’t ask for a better present.  If you haven’t been to the December prompts page, here’s the link.  Hope you all have a really great month of writing!  ~M xo
