Should i be doing something?
I didn't see Prompts mentioned in the description


No - no one is missing anything. I promise. The team was asked to submit prompt suggestions for the alternate prompt comp.  We decided instead of making it a requirement for everyone ( especially those who do not like adhering to prompts ), we would run an adjacent comp instead. That way those who want prompts have them - and those who don't are free to write as they choose; thusly, no one feels slighted or left out.

Because Summer was unable to submit any prompts, I told Daisy she could in her place. However, and what the hell, if ANY NaPo member wants to submit prompts please let me know, and I'll message you with the theme.  We don't want to announce it until we reveal the prompts.

Today is the deadline! Johnny and I need to cull then submit to Webmiss by Monday for her review ( which could take a bit of time depending on her schedule ).

Thanks Ahavati. I thought I would be out from the team if I cannot submit a prompt.:-)

Thanks, everyone, for your prompts!  We are in the process of culling now and will be forwarding to the Webmiss Monday.  The prompt-comp will be launched adjacent to the the NaPo Comp April 1st! And that ain't no April Fool's Day joke!

T- Minus two weeks and counting!

Goodness! I experienced an internet outage due to all the flooding from ten tons of melting snow and come back to find this thread grew four pages.

Glad it happened now - instead of in April!

I'm in!

California (PST)

Two quick questions?
1. Will there be a hashtag to use?
2. Are there word (min/max) limits?

Welcome,  Wally.

Yes; there will be a hashtag to use which will be posted in the comp guidelines. Secondly, yes - there must be 50 'UNIQUE' words in each poem.  To quote sofie ( rather than reinventing the wheel )

If you use the word Ďaí four times in your poem itís only counted as one unique word. So repeated words are only counted once in terms of being unique, regardless of how many times you use them.  You need to have at least 50 unique words in your poem (more is ok too).

Contractions such as isnít can be used and re-used in full form to count as unique words Ė isnít (1 unique word) is (another unique word) and not (another unique word).


The practice comp you just entered is exactly what you will be expected to do each day through April - you can exceed the 50 unique word count; however, you can't fall under or that poem will be disqualified, thus costing you a trophy.

Hope that helps.

I've hoped to join in and do this.  Even if I fail.  Because if I don't try I'll never know.  Thank you for having me along.
