Looking for Prompts

For this month's poetry challenge I've been Velcroed to the poetry prompts on Poetic Asides. Often I'll read the prompt in the morning and think—I cannot be motivated by these words. Even when all appears nonsensical and nothing jells I stay with the prompt.

By the time I sit down to write I find that I do have something to say—often surprising. The prompts jolt me out of my usual place and make me wrestle with words and thoughts. It is all worth the effort.

Some people find visual images act as inspiration. Heres a link to 100 Superstars of Southern Art

If you do write something please send it to me.

  1. Some remarkable artists, Linda. Thanks for the link. I found two over the age of 50—most heartening. (Not that I'm trying for fame or success other than in my mind, you understand.)
