Thursday Word List #3

Welcome to our 'Thursday Word List' prompt!  Some people call them 'wordles' or 'word banks,' but here at Pink.Girl.Ink. we refer to these simply as 'word lists.'


How It Works:

EVERY THURSDAY, I will select a list of at least 10 words (sometimes more).  I pull these words from a favorite literary piece that has inspired me. Usually I pull these words from another poem.  I always provide the title of the piece, as well as the author, unless you want to go read it for yourself.

The idea is to take those 10 words and create a new, unique piece of writing of your own.

I love word lists/wordles because  they allow me to use words I don't often use, and those new words encourage fresh concepts and ideas for my poetry.


The Word List for this week is selected from the original, gritty lyrics of Bob Dylan as they appear in his song titled Idiot Wind


The Word List for this week comes from a poem by Marge Piercy, titled The Air Smelled Dirty.




Word List:
mountains
dark
furnace
frost
windows
magic
landscapes
skirts
night
shadows
scampered

Retro Writes (Tuesday) #3

                                                   


The Rules:

Welcome to our new writing challenge!

Every Tuesday I will post some lovely retro-era eye candy as inspiration (think 50's-80's decades).  I will be posting photographs and advertisement ephemera that, perhaps, is quite different from modern day photography in hopes that it may inspire us to come up with parallels and concepts we might not otherwise make with modern art/photography.

Simply write a piece of poetry, fiction, flash fiction, or even create your own art-work.  Anything goes so long as you create/write something original!


Most of all, have fun creating!


And now, for the prompt.

Friday First Line Poetry #2

Hello folks!

Welcome to Friday "First Lines."

I created First Line poetry prompts years ago to aid in my creating writing forays.  You can find that initial first post HERE.


How It Works:

Each Friday I will provide, for you, a first line.

This is to be the very first line of your poem, story, etc.

As stated, you can create any type of writing so long as THIS is the first line.

Feel free to alter the first line to fit your exact piece if writing, if you must.  However, I usually try to keep it as it is.


.....And The First Line For This Week Is:



"Night folds the stars into each other, little mirrors"
