Welcome to Writing Prompt Pit Stop! So, I’m still playing catch up, but I’m getting back on track! For PoMoSco prompt 20 we were to go to a library or bookstore…and while on our way there make note of our surroundings/observe. I was still in Indianapolis when I did this prompt yesterday, so that was obvious to me. I selected my books to peruse in Barnes & Noble on Indianapolis. Here is my resulting poem, “Indianapolis: Concrete & Humanity.” Enjoy!
Here is the Day 20 prompt, Off the Shelf:
Head to your local library or bookstore, making a mental note of things you see on your journey there — you might, for instance, see construction taking place, drive by a used car dealership, pass a printing shop or spot a group of birds in the trees.
Make one of the things you saw your research topic for the day and find five books related to that topic in your library or bookstore’s stacks. Compose a poem using only the words and phrases found on the first five pages of each text, excluding introductory matter.
Make a note of your sources and include the citations along with your completed poem.
