2007-03-09 [Annie]: Ok I think you've pretty much got it. :) You changed your idea in the three different "movements." Good job! Now let's hope some more people submit before the end of the month so we can have a real contest this month. ^_^
2007-03-09 [Kiddalee]: Impressive idea. *watches*
2007-03-09 [Annie]: Thanks Kiddalee. You should watch AND give it a try. The first month is the hardest one to get enough competitor's in. :)
Heart Mister Saint for another entry!
2007-03-09 [Jenna Rose]: Thank you for reading it, Annie ^^ When I think of innocence, I just think of flowers and wilting ones as the loss of their innocence, so... *shrug* xD
2007-03-09 [Annie]: ;)
2007-03-10 [Kiddalee]: Good point.
2007-03-10 [Annie]: Hey all you wonderful people who are giving love to a new contest...I just made ANOTHER new contest. So if you've already submitted on this one and you're just itching to do something more...check out the next one I just made for narrative poems/short stories. It's called Lifeswitcher. It should make you a little nostalgic. ;)
2007-04-02 [Calann]: Oh nose. I knew I should have done something earlier. ;_;
Ah well, maybe I'll get something for this round.
2007-04-02 [Jenna Rose]: You should :) I have an idea already! ^^ If I get to work on it while I remember it x.x
2007-04-03 [Annie]: ;) good, I'd love to have all of your entries. ^_^
2007-04-03 [Mister Saint]: I'll definitely give this another shot.
Question. The different approach thing... last time I used different rhythm patterns, but what about entire genres? Say one movement haiku, one movement limerick (ack!), and one movement blank verse iambic pentameter?
2007-04-03 [Annie]: Hi mister saint, -big hug- for competing in this one again. :)
Yes that's absolutely fine to use completely different forms for the different movements, just be sure that you still take a different mental approach. For instance, if in movement one you use a haiku and you say something like "i love mice" and then in movement two you use a limerick and say something like "i really love mice" and then in the third movement you use blank verse iambic pentameter and say "i really really really love mice" than you aren't changing what you're saying or taking a different approach.
However, you COULD have your first movement be a haiku saying something like "i love mice" and then the second movement a limerick saying something like "when i'm alone in my room and i hear my mice skittering about it makes me feel all warm inside" and then in the third movement have your blank verse iambic pentameter and say something like "mice are the pet of the god's", than that would be more appropriate. :) Hope that helps and didn't bore you beyond all reason.
2007-04-28 [Calann]: I hope mine's okay. :3
2007-05-01 [Annie]: Looks okay to me. Probably could have separated the ideas even more, but I can see the subtle differences.
2007-05-01 [Annie]: Hello all, I just opened up a new poetry contest. You should go look and compete. It's called Ess.
2007-06-28 [Laika]: Yay! It's an entry!
2007-06-28 [Annie]: Haha...it may be cancelled this month if there aren't enough submissions...
2007-06-28 [Laika]: Awwwh. Why can't I just win by default? :D
2007-06-28 [Calann]: Because that's boring. :P
2007-06-29 [mousepoet]: I think we're all intimidated by your entry, Laika. :)
2007-06-29 [Calann]: Personally, I'm not, because I haven't read it yet - I just suffer a writer's block currently, now that I would have time. -_-
