With Earth Day recently taking place, my impact on the planet is at the forefront of my mind. The images of our seas plastic pollution is very disturbing and that is where I drew my inspiration for today's poem.
I've always loved Avicii's music and I was sad to hear he had passed this weekend. I hoped the news was a hoax but it is wasn't. Today's poem is using the lyrics from one of his songs.
As a Fantasy writer, I love making the impossible real. My first instinct is to go with 'The clock can't strike thirteen' because it makes me think of my favourite film (from the 80s) Labyrinth, with goblins, faeries, mazes and magic.
I think Echo’s story is one many have experienced. I'd bet everyone has wanted someone who doesn't know they exist and dismisses them without realising the hurt caused. If you've not experienced that - lucky you.
Today's poem is about how we all are unique and we shouldn’t let anyone tell us who we are based on a box we are put in. Nobody should be compared to someone else. Especially not at the expense of their confidence.
Wow, it has been so hot today. Not sure how I'm going to cope as I get more pregnant but I plan to make the most of this heat wave whilst it's here because you never know in England what the weather will be tomorrow.
For Day 18 the promt... Makes no sense to me, so I'm ignoring it.
There are plenty of tales of growing up. I have a younger brother and sister and we often played tricks on each other.
When I first approached this task I thought of Peculiar Pets by Victoria Roberts. It's a picture book about a little girl that wants a pet but her mum says "We'll see" whenever she asks. The little girl creates pets out of bits and pieces around the home. It is a delightful read about a child's imagination and creative play.
I've made it half way through, learnt more than I expected and feel motivated that I can make it to the end of 30 days. Today’s challenge is to write a poem that shows the human side of a villain. I chose the Grim Reaper.
