Random Writing Prompt of the Week

This week’s Chautauqua workshop under Rick Hilles is a workshop of “jailbreaks” — roughly taking chances with your own poetry and writing “differently” — that is writing a different type of poem than you are used to writing.  So, my jailbreak of the night? The writing prompt is to make a list of 10 things you fear or 10 things that allure  you.  Then, write a poem from the point of view of that thing.  What am I going to write about? Leeches.  Yep, leeches.  They disgust me, yet they are strangely fascinating — believe it or not they have such an interesting history.  So, I’m off to my leeches poem.
