Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! We’re a little over a week into the new year and I am happy to say that I haven’t given up on any of my resolutions.
My daughter went back to school this week but my three year old has had a cold, so I haven’t accomplish much. But I did get to snuggle lots and watch cartoons on the couch. My husband starts teaching back up next week, and I head to Miami SCBWI next weekend, so we’re both hoping that the cold skips over us. Fingers crossed.
Michelle Barnes has a call out for a few more people to interview for her 2020 Reader Spotlights. I had a blast last October when I got to participate. Michelle made it super easy and it was really fun to see what everyone came up with for my prompt. If you’re interested, head to her post and fill out the questionnaire.
I have been looking for some fun prompts to get my poetry juices flowing and Michelle’s Ditty Challenges came to mind. So over the next little while, I am going to try to go back and answer some of the prompts that I have missed in the past.
Today I am revisiting Jane Whittingham’s DMC Challenge: write an all-about-me acrostic poem. I thought it would be fun to have a sort of theme run through it that also told a little about me (and my penchant for the spooky).
Enchanting her children with good books at night
Bewitching her family with new recipes
Effortlessly flying along on her skateboard
Cackling at puns and pranks
Carving out time to write each day
Attending to her bearded dragon and tarantula familiars.
