Make sure to send me, Naktarra, a note linking to your lovely, lovely submissions! :heart: :heart:

I have a sneaking suspicion that in the last prompt I held near the beginning of the month might have had a few people not submit their deviations to me. If you aren't mentioned in this journal for your posted prompt, send me a note and I'll see what's up.

The Eighth Write Your Weekly Writing Prompt!



The Prompt: This week it's time for a bit of poetry prompting. However this time it's not just any type of poetry, it's abandoned poetry. Most writers have a little bit of writing scattered around their brain that has been thrown out, or even whole stories or poems which have been left without a quality seal. This week it's your challenge to recycle old ideas and create a coherent poem with it! Be sure to include in your description what sort of things you recycled for it.

Ideas:

:bulletpink: Use a paper in the trash and take lines of text from it to use in your poem.
:bulletpink: Use a book you've never read and find a random line of words you like from it.
:bulletpink: Recycle lines of prose or poetry from your own work that has been or never been posted on DeviantART.

For example:

Riding a bull in the cosmic space belt,  <---(Recycled from an old piece of loose paper)
Her Grandmother was washing broccoli.  <---(A random page in the book "An Acceptable Time" by Madeleine L'Engle)
What was the point of leaving me here?  <---(From the top of my head of one of the first poems I ever wrote.)

You can get as creative and kooky or serious and dramatic as you want with recycling these ideas. This is just one example that I used from stuff around my desk.  :heart: :heart: :heart:

Prizes:

+An optional possibility to write an interview for "What is Love?"(November)
+A feature in Naktarra Literary Almanac Monthly (November)
+Big squishy hugs! :tighthug:

Rules:

:bulletblack: One entry per person.

:bulletorange: Poetry ONLY (100 line limit)

:bulletblack: Please link to your deviation in a note to the appropriate admin. (This week: Naktarra)

:bulletorange: You don't have to be a member to join. :heart:

:bulletblack: It can be a deviation from August-October 2014 or a new deviation.

:bulletorange: Incorporate the prompt or challenge in your own creative way!

As always, the most important rule is: HAVE FUN! :dummy:

The Sixth Write Your Weekly Writing Prompt's Winners!



First place: 20 points!

Light         Wraiths snaked past the quivering form, bleeding evanescent shadows of corrupted souls.  It was a scene far too familiar yet entirely alien in his present state of mind.  Despite the chilling touch of the undead, he felt overheated – fidgeting uncomfortably in the gloom.  They did not seem to mind or care, passing through and around him just as calmly and easily if he had been no more than a shadow himself.  Yet despite this, his movements were constricted by an unseen force, as though invisible strings bound him to a dance not yet allowed to be set in motion.
        In the back of his mind, he felt he had forgotten something important.   Something about a light.  The boy considered asking the beings around him regarding the matter.  Surely they could be of assistance.  Despite their appearance, he did not feel any sense of alarm in their midst.  Almost as though the

Second place: 15 points!

JasonDarkness,
filled the room.
No power;
even the phone stopped working.
Fear.
It was starting to set in.
Foot steps,
echoed down the hall.
Sweat rolled,
down my back.
Waiting for it;
but it was taking forever.
I heard the scrapping of his knife,
his water soaked body;
squishing every step he took.
Shivering I knew his face,
every knew the story.
Panicked I ran for the bathroom,
mistake number one.
I heard him laughing;
he crept in the room.
No escape I coward away,
from the door.
Watching
For his shadow;
his feet suddenly appeared.
He hacked down the door,
I tried to fight back.
But I lost,
just like the rest.
A victim of him,
Jason.
The man with the white mask;
and who drowned in the lake,
right next to my house.
