#BeWoW & Writer’s Quote Wednesday are Tomorrow. Get Ready!

Tomorrow is #BeWoW and Writer’s Quote Wednesday. The first hosted by Me and that other thing hosted by Colleen over at SilverThreading.com.

I combine the two in my #BeWoW post each Wednesday and tweet under #BeWoW.

Normally the hashtag has been for positive posts, motivating posts and things of that nature and stood for Be Wonderful on Wednesday, but I’m going to also make it stand for Be Writing on Wednesday. As long as it’s not negative or derogatory share your post, either on my #BeWoW post on Wednesday, the only post that will go out that day, and/or tweet it with the hashtag #BeWoW so all of us with Twitter accounts can share those posts. Also a ping back to my Wednesday post, which goes out at 00:05 New York City time on Wednesday’s for your convenience, will show in my comments for us to visit, and also tell your readers about what we’re doing.

For the Writer’s Quote Wednesday, go to SilverThreading.com on Wednesday and leave your link in her comments on her post, Tag your post with Writer’s Quote Wednesday, and even do a link back/ping back.

Get ’em ready. It’s time to build up the #BeWoW hashtag to be a force. Be A Writer on Wednesday, #BeWoW.

RonovanWrites #Haiku #Poetry Challenge Review 62

Another week, another challenge, another group of 47 great people making all of this work, and I didn’t go searching for lost and errant poets this time. Both WordPress and Blogger blogs are represented.

I’ve had people recently tell me how much all of you communicate with each other and engage each other. People wonder how “I” created such a great THING here where people show up and participate. I always say I have nothing to do with it except coming up with two words a week and an example. I’m not sure how it’s grown like this, well I do, you guys have done it. Thank you for what you do to make this the success it is.

Okay, enough of the mushy stuff, let’s get on with the awful poetry this week. 😉 Ahhh, sarcasm, it suits me so well.

Haiku Challenge Review Image

Closing Haiku

Torrid dreams begin,

This night of Longed For passion,

Ends with cold shoulders.

Sometimes those Honeymoon nights can be a bummer. 🙂 Not that I PERSONALLY would know that. Nope, not moi.

New to the Challenge this Week

NEW! D.B. Mauldin (Author): Appetites for Consumption | mama bear musings. I sometimes don’t know where I come up with the titles but I just go with it. There are actually two Haiku and they are linked in meaning. “I am a professional and published writer. I write articles, short stories, and I am currently working on my first novel. I have had four short story’s published, in a variety of anthologies, during 2015.” Yes, author. 🙂 Check out the Author link for offerings on Amazon and click HERE for the About page links to other online distribution such as Smashwords.

ReNew! Marcy Erb: To Catch a Criminal | Illustrated Poetry. Yes, I said ‘ReNew’. Why? It’s been sometime since Marcy has had time to join in and I felt a need or a want to reintroduce her. Such a unique and amazing Haiku. One of my MUST READS this week. Her explanation of how it came about is a lesson in itself. My IQ may be quite high but this one made the brain pain a bit. AWESOME! About Marcy? That’s a bit difficult. Super nerd turned poetry nerd? I mean the lady did her About page in poetic form. Don’t believe me? Check it out HERE.



 

First to Arrive

Judy: Make it Hot in Here | Edwina’s Episodes. You know. I wonder about her episodes sometimes. I have them too. When I miss my medications. Well, she sort of SAID she was going in one direction instead of her original intent, but I think she most likely ended up there anyway. It’s Judy. Come on. You just know she has to get a little. well Judy with it. @EdwinasEpisodes



 

Al: Cheap Cookin’ | Al the Author’s Blog. Okay, so the title is mine. I can’t help but think of how I boil eggs when I read this one. But it is very possible Al meant this to be about a relationship. He can like what he wants, and I will like what I want. Don’t judge me! @AlistairLane

Annette Rochelle Aben (Best Selling Author, Radio Show Host): Screamin’ Hot | Annette Rochelle Aben. Um, it’s not what you think, honestly. A theme is going here. Not sure how long it will last but it’s there. Check out Annette’s books at the Author link above and her Radio Show at the Host link. @YouAreTheExpert

Colette: Flagging | The Wishing Well. I have to say I really like how the words were used here. Also some less often used words as well. Cool.

Mira: Make certain to visit all three. start over…| They, You and Me. ooooo. Not sure what else to say but…ooooooooo. embers | To Wear a Rainbow. Bit of a historical piece I envision…outvision…um this one makes me think of. summer affair | They, You and Me. Hmm. Could be people, could be animals, or could be people being animals. I’m not sure. 🙂 @BediMona

Clarence: Lovers Latte | PrairieChat. Yeah, um, Clarence is starting a commotion on his blog this week. And he blamed me for it!

TJ Paris: It’s too darned hot! | La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin. (Is that a  mouthful of blog name or what?) Oh no! An Aussie picture this week? Has he been hacked? Replaced? Unwell? A piece of cod? The Shell you Say! Yeah, I have lost it early this week. Clarence made me do it. Sorry TJ. @Roccoco_a_GoGo

Kat: Venom | Like Mercury Colliding. My son “B” would be proud she got this one right. He’s been correcting people since he was 4 about venom and poison and what is what. If the name isn’t a trigger warning for some of you, well I…good luck. 🙂

Alice: Hot starts | Boomerang Zone. 5 syllables in one word? Awesomelynessness. No that wasn’t the word. And no, again, not want some of you are thinking it’s about. I am impressed with the thinkings this week. @Vidocq_CC

Olga: Toasted! | Stuff and what if …. Where do I come up with these titles? From the Haiku of course. You’ll get it and then want it!!!

Shailzaa: The Change? | Fewunsaidwords. Hmm. I think this one might need to be investigated. o,O

Greg: Storms Coming: Potholes in The Road of Life. Know the feeling here. Sometimes it gets a touch hotter right before. @greg_wolford

Ritu: Autumn Desire | But I Smile Anyway… That’s two Haiku, just so you know. Holy Hannah and her sisters. I need to turn the air on in here. I think one name would have actually fit both. O,O @PhantomGiggler

Amy: Seasoned Changes | Haiku of a Homeschooler. Three this week and all fall into the category of that title, or at least could when one puts ones mind to it. And this one put his half to it. @me_the_seeker

Janice: Hot Summer Ni…urrr, Autumn…What is it anyway?!?! | Ontheland. Yeah, the title actually fits better than you might think. Those of us here in the North American region might all be wondering about this. @ontheland1

Claudette: Life Cycle of an Arguement | to search and to find. Very nice. And very true. I know of people in this right now and it does not end well.

Sandra: Yellow | Wild Daffodil. She’s a combiner and this week I don’t just mean all the challenges she puts into one. She makes an Empty promise for next week. Muahahahaha.

Jane Dougherty (Author): Life of a Flower | Jane Dougherty Writes. Jane says her three Haiku don’t have a common thing, but I say they do, if you want them to. That third one is the one you have to think about using imagery and metaphors. I think the title works. Check out Jane’s books on Amazon at the Author link above. @MJDougherty33

Meredith & Martha: Preparation & Nuisance as well as Hot Tamales & Create | Meredith’s Musings. Entertaining, humorous and very nice to look at Haiku this week. Martha went a little on the humor side with one and Meredith sort of went with the home feel to hers. Very nice. @Meredithlbl

Melissa Barker-Simpson (Author): Helios Power | M Barker-Simpson. Mel read my mind. As I was preparing my previous weeks Haiku I was wanting to use the Heliotrope because of its color but could not fight through the migraines to make it quite the way I wanted it. Now here we are. Awesome. Click the Author link above to visit her on Amazon.

Shida: Blaze Up The Fire | 876LoveR. And of course off I go for YouTube adventuring. Like Protoje’s voice, natural. But with and Chronixx…well, who knows, right? @realrebel_r

Nato: Heated Journey | Chasing Life and Finding Dreams. 7 Haiku in a story. It’s not quite what you think it might be. Very nice too. If you have not read this one…Fool You Must Be!!! If I were still picking Ronovan’s Choices….  @MichelleLunato

Jen (JK): Energy Surge & Pinged Off | the secret keeper. Mindfulness with a Hot Pocket? Wow. The places we go with two words. @occultguardian

Elusive Trope or ET for short?: Upon the Anvil | Elusive Trope. Perhaps I should not have made the ET reference? Hadn’t seen the title of the Haiku before I said that. Oh boy, now to see what ET put upon the anvil. My head perhaps? Hmm, I think I am safe. Or so I am interpreting it as my being safe. Gotta love readers prerogative. 🙂 Wow, reading the comments and the big words used, I feel sooo inadequate now. 😀 (No idea why the use of all the smileys.)

Sue Vincent (Author): Anticipation | Daily Echo. Oh she is going to hate it, but AWESOME! She knows what happens when she includes her lovely other half, Ani. Muahahaha. Click the Author link for Sue at Amazon and her many books. @SCVincent

Melissa?: Preparation | The Aran Artisan. This person seems somewhat familiar. Hmmm. 😛 About time she got herself back here. Just read a book she MUST READ. Mentions hats common in Aran, also set in Galway. An American woman who goes to Ireland and falls for an Irishman. I instantly thought of our Aran Island Girl except it happened in reversed and he kidnapped her back to his homeland. Great pictures as usual, and a look into what it takes to live the life she does. So happy she is back here…home.

Elizabeth: Magical Day | Tea & Paper. I read this one earlier in the week but just now realized the opposites in both it and the photo. Very cool. @teandpaper

Pat B.: Hot Walker | A season and a time. Um again, one of those titles I come up with that make you go hmmm. Did you know that Pat’s blog is on Blogger? That’s right, this isn’t just a WordPress community. 🙂

R. Todd: At the Green… | A Flash of Fiction. Blown could be a good title as well. Great photo for this one. 🙂

Maylian: Hot summer night | personalselfperfection. An interesting Haiku that the title didn’t give away the meaning. You have to read it or you will make the wrong assumption. The image and Haiku obviously go together.

Marje: Hot Rave Drug Murder and Tsunami of Tears | Kyrosmagica.  These are not our usually humor Haiku from Marje this week. So I gave her a hard time this week and almost stumped her? And I wasn’t even trying. I’ve thought about seeing if I could come up with difficult words, but then I would have to use them as well…at least twice. @Marjorie_Mallon

Ruby: Blush of flames | Whispering Thoughts. Two meanings in one. Or one throughout. You decide. Nature or man? It’s up to you. Well done.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega (Author):  Night Terrors | The Writer Next Door. One word and this would have a totally different meaning. Check out Vashti on Amazon at the Author link above and you can see her interview by clicking HERE. @VashtiQV

Colleen: Day Break | Silver Threading. She used the word cherry in a most unique way. Awesome! You know, as Colleen makes a location change I can’t help feel a little sad because of her inspiration for her book was found where she is leaving from. But perhaps she will find some of their cousins where she ends up. @SilverThreading

denis1950: Hot Start | Haiku Hound. 3 Haiku in the 3/5/3 style. You may see this around quite often in the challenge. The 3/5/3 makes it even more challenging. Try it if you like. So a Serious, a Nature, and a Humor. 🙂 I think the nature one qualifies as Humor as well. Hate to say it but it reminds me of ladies at a hair salon. 🙂 Not sure why. I know I will pay for that one when some read this. Great images, the first is a wow, the third is very cool, and the middle is the hair salon.

Carol: September | Mama Cormier. I would almost title this False Impressions if I were Carol. 🙂 But I feel this one. Getting the same thing here. @Carol_Cormier

vronlacroix: Hot air balloon | Simply Snapshots. I really like this one. The image, the Haiku, the word used in place of start, it all works so well. Original in idea. Very nice.

Steven: Shifts | Ramblings of a Drabbling Mind. Can you count how many Haiku are in this one? He gives you a way to see it. 🙂

Becky G: Becky G? Oh, That’s Me! I love the contrast here in the image. And we have a Nature Haiku.

E. Rawls (Author): Race Track/To Win | Rawls E. Fantasy. I like that second one a lot. Check out Bleeding Hearts, a collection of short stories, poems, and riddles, at Elizabeth’s Author page on Amazon by clicking the Author link above.  @VChronicles_

stu06bloc9: Startling | Pitter Patter Poetry. HA! You so think stu went a weird route with the prompt word then suckers you in at the end. Muahahahaha! Classic.

Juliette: Seasons Change | Battered Wife seeking Better Life. Her description of her Haiku is accurate. Straight to the point. Perhaps she is losing her inner being touch? Poor thing. Lost her gift of gab. 😛 @BWseeingBL

Florence: Sign | Meanings and Musings. Wonder if she is trying to say something here? @FTThum

Ronovan: Heat | Ronovan Writes. In addition to the two Opening Haiku and the closing I actually did a separate post for another. The image could be misleading, take the meaning of the words as you like. @RonovanWrites

Submissions to Rivet Journal. Experimental is a good thing. @RedBridgePress

Rivet Journal Submissions

Article from RivetJournal.com  

Rivet: The Journal of Writing That Risks publishes new literary work that breaks from the confines of mainstream realism to surprise, delight, and challenge readers.

We seek writing that crosses boundaries of form, content, and style — either subtly or radically. Send us works of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that are too fabulist, surrealist, or experimental for traditional publishers. We are glad to consider work that uses genre elements in interesting ways (e.g. an urban noir fairy tale), but we are not looking for work that is primarily aimed at a genre audience (e.g. high fantasy or hard science fiction). To get a feel for the range of writing that interests us, check out the anthology Writing That Risks: New Work from Beyond the Mainstream.

General Guidelines:

  • All submissions must be previously unpublished in print or electronically. Author must be the sole rights holder of the submission.

For the rest of the Guidelines, what they are looking for and the remainder of the article, click here.

Jen History Repeats | the secret keeper

Last night before falling asleep, I felt a Haiku welling up inside. My tablet was in my hands. I wrote down the verse, and with some minor edits the Haiku appeared: “History Repeats.” It is the PING presently above. It seems my reaction to Ronovan’s words Rise and Save had an extremely visceral reaction within me. All three Haiku I wrote in this Challenge came from dreams and a necessity to record what came to me. TY Ronovan for your majorly creative and inspirational choices of words. It seems they inspire all of us. jk 😎

I ain’t lazy, maybe a little crazy. (A Poem.)

They call me insane for my constant author campaigns.
But who is to say someone else will come up with my way?
Look to the left and then to the right, then you might say who might be a might.
Set up the way for a better day to display what authors have to say.

Yes, I am crazy, but you can’t call me lazy.
I might be a bit touched, but who isn’t by much?
Would you rather not gather and foam at the mouth in a lather,
As you sit, and don’t hit, while your book don’t sell spit?

It’s not all on me, as you will see, you gotta make it be.
You will be a part, as I start, and leave a remark.
Don’t know what I’m talking about?
Listen up and you’ll hear people shout.
