Last night I got my word for the March Madness 2013 Poetry Tournament. Half the authletes got their words, and the other half will get them tomorrow. We each have a different word and will be writing a poem over the next 36 hours using that word. The poems will be posted this Wednesday for the first flight of poems and Thursday for the second flight of poems.. You just NEED to go there and vote for your favorite poems. They should be some remarkable pieces. The word bank had to be incredible this year - the words range from pretty solid words we might use every day to words that most have never even said in their entire lives, and have never even planned to say, ever, and would have to look up in a dictionary and maybe even have it pronounced for them if they wanted to use them someday like today.
That being said, I am lame and stiff after Sunday's stairway routine. I am going to hold the railing ALWAYS from now on. I am going to consolidate my belongings so I can have a hand free to do that. And if it is dark, I am going to go more slowly and cautiously, feeling for each step before I decide to do any more pirouettes. There just isn't enough room in the stairwell to do one well, and a tour jette is right out!
I must go. I have some nice safe writing to do now. I'll be sitting still in one spot. I'm not even getting my tiara out...though that could be an inspiration...
Must sit here a spell and write really well. Grab a cookie to chew, and spew a rhyme or two. Turn the heat pad to hot, and don't move from this spot. Sit down where it's cozy, and with computer compose-y... my poem!
Don't forget to vote on Wednesday and Thursday!
