OctPoWriMo Day 8


Art by MDragonwillow

Thursday was a very difficult day for me. My laptop stopped charging and when I went to have it repaired, found out it would be more than a new laptop. So I bought a bluetooth keyboard for my tablet and it's rather awkward to use but I'm doing my best. Oh, and after all that, I got into a car accident on my way home. Just a fender bender but still, one more thing that caused me stress and more money because it was also my fault.

This Prompt, Strange and Wonderful I've been struggling with. I've been procrastinating writing it. Writing in general actually, since Thursday. Today I even took the day off to process, rest, and nest a bit in my room. I really don't know where I'm going with this. 

The wonderful, the woman I collided with, she was so nice that she even told the officer not to write a report because she didn't want me to get a ticket. A good friend who lives down the street from me, when I told her about my day, brought over beer and we sat on my porch and chatted for hours which felt wonderful.

My life is a series of strange and wonderful and I transfer that onto the page, in words and art. 

Poetry Prompt

Write about what is strange and wonderful in your life? How can you express that on the page?

Word Prompts

Wonderfully strange
life altering

Poetry Type - Acrostic, I like acrostic for this prompt because you can turn it into a story like I did with my poem, Lipstick. Unfortunately that poem was on the blog that no longer exists and I realize I don't think I have a copy of it. Anyway... I challenge you to write a story with your Acrostic in a poetic form.


Use magnetic poetry and randomly choose strange and wonderful words to create a poem.

It's too difficult to attach a video on my tablet so turn on music you wouldn't normally listen to and move to it.
