First off I just want to say that I've always admired your style of writing. It's complex and evoking, mind-tingling, and all around in...


Though short and sweet this poem packs quite a powerful punch of imagery and complexity. I love the traditional AABB rhyme scheme you u...

I've decided to create a new challenge for myself and for anyone who would like to embark on this journey with me.

So what is the Title Challenge?
Basically this is how it will work:
I will look through my inbox, the front page, the lit page etc. every couple of days just browsing the poetry. If I see a title that inspires me, I will then challenge myself to use that title in a poem of my own. It will either be the first word of the poem or it will appear within the body of the poem. The poem has to be entirely inspired by the title alone. I will also write the poem before ever reading the poem of the original title. I want to limit similarities as much as possible and I also want to see how the poems compare. (:

Why did I create the Title Challenge and why am I doing it?
I created it because I was looking for a unique way of challenging and improving my writing skills. Titles are also very important to me. It's amazing how much they contribute to a poem and sometimes they're the most profound and inspiring thing about a poem. 

I'm going to be using other people's ideas to inspire my writing. How am I gonna handle this?
This journal will be dedicated to the poems that I write from this challenge. I will list the original poem credited to the original author, a link to the poem, and a link to my poem. I will also ask the permission of the original author if it is okay. If I am not given permission I will not write the poem. 

How can you, my watchers, help me with this challenge?
If you have a poem you think will inspire me, link it! If you have a deviant who you think has some awesome poetry that will inspire me, link me to their profile! If you join me on this challenge, let me know! I'd love to read your inspirations and they might even inspire me. :) And as always, I'm looking for feedback so don't be shy! Tear my writing apart or you know gently poke it with a stick. Whatever you feel it deserves. 

I greatly appreciate anyone who has taken the time to read about my challenge, is tagging along for the journey in support, or who decides to join me. 

While I'm here I want to go ahead and ask some of my favorite poets if they're okay with the challenge, because they will most likely end up on the list.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a Super Fantastic Saturday!!
