It was a great little getaway, and I returned with a new story idea for my NaNoWriMo project 😀 I’ve already written two chapters, haha. When inspiration hits, I follow ❤ I’m going to save my notes for this project and tackle it in December or January.
I’m joining the challenge 🙂 I hope you will too! I’ve decided to write from the perspective of my characters from my NaNoWriMo project. Hopefully, this will help me understand their motivations, desires, and struggles a bit more.
Today’s poem is from my main heroine. I still don’t know her name yet 😀
With reverence, I study the night sky.
I read the stars dappled across the ebony expanse
analyzing, translating, listening
I scrutinize until my eyes are dry, my fingertips worn
from transcribing the message over and over again
onto parchment paper she will burn.
All of this is for her.
Will she let me leave this tower, this prison without doors?
There you have it 🙂 A short piece for now. Happy writing, friends! I can’t wait to read your poems.
Hey friends! Do you write poetry? Have you always been interested in poems? Write a poem based on the 12 Dancing Princesses for Timeless Tales Magazine!
Deadline for 12 Dancing Princesses Poetry: June 9 – 14, 2019. You can send multiple pieces totaling up to 1,500 words. You could also send one poem.
They aren’t looking for poems from the shoes’ perspective or a setting around ballet. They have stories with those angles already. They suggested on their website to mix the tale with elements from Bluebeard or the 12 Tribes of Israel.
