31 Lines to Link

I’ve already seen so many fantastic entries for this week’s prompt of 31 Lines, and I can’t wait to see more!

Did you find it difficult to be limited in line length?

Did this inspire you to give OctPoWriMo a shot?

Are you enjoying these prompts?

Do you think I’m going to give you 31 questions?

No. No, I’m not.

I am going to say that if you haven’t linked up already this week, you’ve got until midnight tonight (12pm EST) to link up your poem to be considered for this week’s community vote! You can leave your poem below in the comments or give us a pingback. Or both.

Thanks for joining in with us and let’s get linking, because the only way you can vote, is if you read! Take the time to visit a few of your fellow poets and check out their work.

The community favorite will be featured on Sunday and it will be considered an automatic submission for the Spring 2015 issue of The Reverie.

Tomorrow starts OctPoWriMo!

Don’t know what that is? It’s okay. You aren’t alone. I just found out about it this year.

I feel completely out of the loop.

But for those of you that are familiar with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), this is sort-of the same thing, except for poets.

Which means it’s even more awesome. At least, I think so.

So this week, we’re going to get into the spirit of OctPoWriMo, where you’ll be setting a goal to post a poem a day for the entire 31 days of October.

We’re not asking you to write 31 poems for us, though. No, we want you to write us a 31 line poem. No more. No less. You’ve got 31 lines to say whatever you want!

So there’s your prompt. By next Friday. 31 lines. Go!

And there is still time to get info for OctPoWriMo. We won’t officially challenge you, but pretend we did. You can do it!
