writer’s island #1: message in a bottle (notes)

May 2, 2010

I took yesterday off from writing. It wasn’t purposeful. I had no real plan. It was the day after NaPoWriMo, and it made sense. If something had come, I would have listened to it, but nothing came.

Today, I wrote a draft poem for the current Writer’s Island prompt: message in a bottle. During a free write, “message in a bottle” morphed into “spin the bottle,” and so I played with the notes I scratched in that portion of the free write.

The draft is in the post below this one (here) with the password. Many of you know it; if you need it, email me. It’s caroleesherwood, and I’m at gmail.

Our first prompt for Big Tent Poetry goes up tomorrow! Be sure to come by and see it. You’ll have until Friday to work on your poems!

So what’s this password thing? Well, it’s not new. Except for special occasions, like NaPoWriMo, I only post drafts with a password, so really, today’s post is just getting back to that habit. What’s different today is that I am posting the drafts here instead of over at “i am maureen,” which I have closed for now. If it works to post the drafts here, I’ll keep “i am maureen” closed. If it doesn’t, I’ll return to her.
