Welcome to Writing Prompt Pit Stop! Today, I skipped one since I didn’t get yesterday’s done yet – so today’s PoMoSco prompt is the Best Laid Plan. I chose to do a poem from the Toledo Museum of Art’s member magazine, arTMAtters. It was taken from an article on Werner Pfeiffer, and I omitted anything that had to do with art or creativity…which would leave us with a pretty grim world, huh? Here is my poem, “The Possibilities of Harsh Realities.” Enjoy!
Here is the Day 24 prompt, Best Laid Plan:
Approach a text with a plan to remove something. Think beyond just a single word and instead consider removing references to a subject or emotion, actions taken by certain characters, colors, etc.
Whatever you choose, apply your approach and, keeping as much of the remaining text intact as possible, create your poem from results.
