Here we go! It’s out first PROMPTuesday! And remember: ANYONE can participate. This is for fun. Even if you don’t care a hill of beans for creative writing prompts or, for that matter, creative writing in general, you are welcome in this place of non-judgment and happy color rainbows! Yeah! Miss Mary/Barry Sunshines all over the place!
(I’ve gone ahead and gotten a head start on making no sense.
SO, let’s make it easy today: Write a nonsense poem. Make up words. Create silly sentences. Whatever. Just make it all a bunch of make believe and not making sense-it-ness.
And DON’T second guess your work. No head games on yourself. Just write whatever springs to mind and go for it.
So when you can today, set a timer for 10 minutes and write whatever pops into your brain. Keep in mind the 150-word limit. Then post your work in your blog, or in the comments below.
When you’re done with all that, pay a visit to Mr. Linky below and write your name and the link where we can find your post.
That’s all! Let’s get to it!
Here’s my submission:
Hippity hoppity doop
The pea is in the soup
I asked it, please, get on your knees
Like good peas always do
He told me no, it’s time to go
And then he flew the coop
I watched him fly
Green hue and all
But no wings to be found
I wondered then, how can he soar
He’ll surely hit the ground
Sure ‘nough he did
Just like a smid
Hippity hoppity goop
