April 11 Poetry Prompt: Opposite Day

Today's prompt focuses on your and your writing habits.

Challenge yourself today to write a poem in a manner that is very different from how you normally write, so different that it is actually the opposite of how you normally write.

Here are some suggestions:

Start with a title

Handwrite on lined paper

Handwrite on unlined paper

If you can find one, use a typewriter

Write with a pencil

Write standing up

Write during your lunch hour

Sit outside to write

Play music while you write

Start with the last line and write "up"

Rather than write your poem, record your poem

Begin writing when you first wake, put the poem away, then finish the draft right before


Have fun!
