Weekly poetry competition.

This site runs a weekly poetry competition. There's no entry fee and no prize other than online publication and a warm fuzzy feeling. Still, if you write poetry just for the glory and money, you're on a rocky path and have a steep climb ahead of you.

(I climbed up to the top of this rock - then had to slide back down on my bum thanks to a lack of railings and sudden attack of scaredycatness. )

    1. I moved slowly, Jane so It wasn't painful (not to me anyway, I think my husband may have tweaked something laughing at me)

  2. I love to make up words. My fav in my current WIP is dramaculous.

    1. I may have been a bit dramaculous climbing down that rock, Mac.

    1. I took the picture before I went up, Maggie. I took one from the top too and surprisingly it's not that blurry ...

    1. Stop planning, start writing, Rachna!

      (Sorry, I seem to have come over a bit bossy.)

    1. I certainly prefer competitions without them, Chrys.

  8. Thanks for the link.
    Confession time - poetry is my first love, but has since been ousted by flash fiction...
    However, from January, I've pledged to write a haiku a day. It's going okay. From time to time, I've fallen by the wayside, but then I write 2 or 3 to make up...

    1. You might be tempted to have a go at this then, Michelle. Good luck if you do.

  10. Poetry is out, but maybe climbing the rock is in. Like you, getting down is the problem.

    1. It always seems such a good idea when I start off, Oscar!

  11. If you slid down that on your bum you must be a mass of bruises!

    1. I slid exceedingly slowly and mostly under control, Lizy.
