Welcome to Writing Prompt Pit Stop! I’m almost caught back up, one more after this one and I’m even with the days of National Poetry Month again, whew! So today’s PoMoSco prompt I chose to use was “Pinch an Inch,” and, just like it sounds it uses some math skills…or at least using a ruler and a text! I’m not big on math, but I have come to realize that a lot of poetry does use a lot of it…I just choose to ignore that fact! LOL! Anyway, I chose the novel, Prodigal Summer, by Barbara Kingsolver to get the needed words for my 21st poem of the month: “Nobody Territorial.” Enjoy!
Here is the Day 21 prompt, Pinch an Inch:
Begin with a source text of your choice and a ruler. Mark off a column of text one vertical inch wide down and extending down one or more pages — you might choose, for example, to use an inch down the center of your page, or along the page’s left or right margin. Craft your poem using only words located within your vertical column inch(es).
If you decide to use multiple pages, locate your vertical column inch in the same location on each page (i.e. all center columns, all right margin columns, etc).
