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.

A Haibun is a style of poetry that combines prose with a Haiku poem. Here’s my Haibun poem about my hometown for #NaPoWriMo
I have interpreted today's prompt as a poem on how you envision your future.
Today, I skipped the prompt and wrote a poem in celebration of National Unicorn Day!
Here is my belated day 9 poem. Sorry it’s late. I will try so hard to card up...
I loved this challenge and had so many ideas, I couldn't focus. I thought about a statute coming to life, that is the perfect manly figure, capturing the hearts of women but he can't be touch or you'll turn to stone and he has a graveyard of statues of women that hadn't been able to resist him. I will save that story idea for another day... Click to read the magical poem I did write...
