Prompt #71 B1

September 8, 2011


We Write Poems:  
Barbara (Briarcat, as we know her!) asks us this week to B1 (be one, you get it?).  She suggests, re-invent yourself for a few minutes.  Imagine yourself somehow different.  Smarter maybe, or drop-dead-gorgeous.  Brash or shy or EVIL.  Give this proxy character a name, down to earth or off the wall.  Have fun with it!

Now step out of this world and send your invented self into some well known story, song, poem, fairy tale, TV series; pick some place that has already been realized and populated.

Take the opportunity to tell us something.  What might your created persona have to say about the situation they are cast within?  Give yourself permission to be different!  Please read Briarcat’s original prompt for more details and example poem.

Thanks Barbara for the excellent creative prompt!

Come back next Wednesday when you see,It’s Post Your Poems Day!” and leave a link to the poem on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, then please, post your poem in the comment itself.    ***    You are invited to respond to the prompt given here, but if you have something else you’re just itching to share, please feel welcome in doing that. Our first desire here is to encourage you to write and learn and share.    ***    When leaving comments to other’s poems, please be appreciative and encouraging. We are not a poem “critique” site (unless someone specifically asks for that). Be kind with each other (and yourself!).    ***    Please consider including a link with your blog poem back to the prompt response here at We Write Poems so that others may see and join our community. More participants do make better soup!

    I hope y’all can make some sense of this. The idea is really to give yourself an order: find a different point of view.
