I came back to the writing today because I really wanted to use Jill‘s prompt for Day 8 at Read Write Poem: “unusual love connections.” It asked for five or more unusual metaphors about love/obsession. Only four strange ones came to mind — a slingshot, mashed potatoes, an alligator’s mouth and daylight savings time — so I started there. I ended up staying with the slingshot and the mashed potatoes never made it to the other two (another time!).
This extra poem on Day 8 does not put me ahead in terms of NaPoWriMo. I still have to write every day for the rest of the month. I’ll just end up with 31 poems instead of 30. Rules is rules.
