It’s been a little while now since I started collecting three random words from friends and strangers to turn into poetry. The posts are all tagged 3RW and are more-or-less in the order in which I received the ideas.
I am over halfway through my 100 word collection of poems. I have posted more than half of them on here and I have got almost a full set of words to work from.
So really I am in the final push to get some really amazing, weird, quirky, awkward, contentious words to work with for the last few. I’ve been getting loads from over on Etsy which has been fantastic. If I do happen to get a few over 100 I will keep going – the idea was always to enjoy writing the poems (which I am) and to try and make me a better poet in the process (someone else can be the judge of that one).
Have you spotted the hint? I am hoping for some incredible words. At the moment I am only taking one set of ideas from each person and then when I get to the end I might go over some of the duplicates I have been given and have a go at them. If there’s someone reading this who hasn’t given me words – please do. Also if you know people who you think would be good at this could you please pass it along. Especially if they have slightly weird or warped imagination (yes, my fantasy/sci-fi reading friends I am looking at all of you).
I am accepting ideas here, on Twitter, Facebook, Etsy – actually any which way that you would like to get in touch.
Thanks everyone – clearly I couldn’t be doing this alone!
