Prompt #70 “Speed Challenge”


Jeeyoung Lee

My inspiration for today’s prompt can be found here


Your job is to write as many poems as you can in 20 minutes! I want you to post all your efforts but if you like you can take one (or more) of those poems and resubmit it after polishing it up =) If you don’t write poetry you can do a story, a series of sketches, or photographs taken spontaneously. If you don’t have 20 minutes then you can do a 10 minute or 5 minute challenge (just specify the time you set for your challenge).

    Big grin in the quarter as the prompt itself fits as if it were made just for me…
    *giggle* I found a way to link it to my Story Whirl… enjoy!

        I do, I submitted 2 for this challenge and I have one prepared for tomorrow’s Wordle. I don’t write to all of them every single time though. I do the Wordles the most sometimes I make them really hard lol

    This was a very interesting prompt – even though I’m no poet – I had to consider it – so many options to play. Much like stream of consciousness writing. Great way to just have fun 🙂

      I really loved your entry, amazing work! I think there is a poet in you!

        Perhaps, hidden somewhere, but definitely not in any “traditional sense” — and so, I will continue to amuse myself and play 🙂

        Nothing wrong with being untraditional
