Exercise #765

Exercise #765: Interactive
Posted 6/22/18

This one might be tough...

You were asked to submit four words; a noun, a verb, an adjective and an adverb. Review the choices offered by our membership. Didn't keep them? Visit this site:

For today’s exercise, write a poem which includes one word from each category. You can use all choices from one submitter, but it’d be more fun to mix and match. You cannot choose your own! You may also change the tense of the verb, if you like.

There is a good list of the different poetry types here:

If you often write poetry, you might challenge yourself by choosing a different style from what you normally do.

Remember to give us the words you used and which type of poetry you’re submitting!

Absolutely detest poetry? Okay, you can do prose. (But you might give haiku or a limerick a shot, first.)

I’ve added Richard’s notes on critiquing poetry to our Critiquing Techniques and Tips page:

Critiquers, along with a technical critique of the piece, you might note how well the author created something from the chosen words.

Word limit: none
