Author: Music Writing Prompt (Week II: Chlorine)💦

Music meets writing prompt. Writing prompt means practice. Practice equals shiny literary awards on your next book cover and access to free taco bars inbetween interviews asking about your literary genius. Yum.

Join in, folks. Tacos for all.🌮

And special shout out to Chelsea for participating in last week’s prompt featuring David Bowie’s, “Heroes.” She’ll be taking a summer sabbatical soon, but check out her blogs for some great reads. 🥳

The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest

 

Come all, come one. Can you write the most terrible poem to the theme?

Chelsea Ann Owens

Welcome to The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest! This is our 34th time of offending the internet and I hope we continue to disappoint.

As those who’ve entered before know, writing terrible poetry is an art form. To truly offend one’s sensibilities; a bad poet needs to nearly fit a meter, almost follow a rhythmic pattern, or get so close to a beautiful description his audience starts picturing EXIT signs instead of snow falling gently in a springtime field. I explain the process a bit here.

Besides that, here are this week’s specifics:

  1. Topic: Animals and their pregnancy.
    Did you know the African Bush Elephant carries …well, an elephant for 22 months? That a male seahorse carries the babies (up to 1,500!)? Or that female Komodo Dragons can impregnate themselves without a male through a process called parthenogenesis?
    Did you know you’re going to write a poem about it?
