Well, it may be unreadable gibberish, but it will be honest gibberish.

Good morning, Team Napo'19!  We're halfway to the Fountain of Inspiration!  Clear skies and calm seas prevail, UNTIL . . .

Up from the depths, tentacles
numbering one through ten
Could have been a giant squid
or somewhat worse ...
Quite possibly a Kraken

When more broke water's surface
threat level began to escalate
And it was on this day
Fourteenth of April, 2019
we were then thus faced with
our greatest obstacle to date --

The dreaded, ugly headed
Encyclopedicus

And not looking so good
was the NaPoWriMo's fate

Asked newbie crewmate, JusTim_
If we wait and be still
perhaps this monstrosity of the sea
will simply go away?
 

To which Viddax promptly informed him
( in no less than two hundred words )
We will never again see the light of day!  
For the Encyclopedicus is a beast among beasts -
a leviathon that feasts upon ideas and topics -
swallows them whole from westerly to far easts
from North to South Pole and midway
all along the islands of the tropics!
Needless to say ...


Our little boat crewed by poets was screwed
Or . . . was it - stay tuned!

Team Members, thank you for your reports - they have all been addressed.

* If you have already submitted your Fourteenth offering, it will be reflected on tomorrow's update.

Looks like we have one straggler to design for proud flag flying across our website and social networking platforms.  If you haven't heard from us we're getting to you asap! You can view the designs that have been uploaded here:

Also on DUP's facebook. instagram, and twitter, so be on the lookout for your flag flying the mast!  

Happy Poeting, Team Napo'19!

All of these flags, as they are added to the masts of the NaPoWriMo, are so beautiful.., majestic in the sea air!  The Cap’n’s A & J are a big part of why 2019’s voyage will go down in Deep’s history!

Yes, I'd say this is by far the best crew ever.

Last year, we had a lot of newbs who bailed before we even sailed.

The scurvy slugs!

The Encyclopedicus lunged with a gargantuan gaping gulp, swallowing the NaPoWriMo whole!

Our ship settled in the first of the leviathon's many stomachs that filtered out water and air, so there was at least a little time to devise an escape.  Question was, how did one exit a beast the size of many whales that binged on ideas for new tales? The crew only had so many ideas before the cargo hold ran dry. What then?!

We tickle the monster's tummy with the feather from a pirate's hat, suggested Jade-Pandora.

Unfortunately, an Encyclopedicus lacked funny bones.

We run back and forth until we become so exhausted that we are pooped out! chimed Cloventongue89.

While this was rather brilliant, uhh ... no. There simply was not enough soap in the world to clean up after a jouney through the creature's bowels. The prospect of muddling through all that raw, unrefined poetry --

We keep feeding it new poem ideas ... ?  Summerrain75 volunteered.

Yes.

It was our only hope to bide us more time.    

Team Members, thank you for your reports - they have all been addressed.

* If you have already submitted your Fifteenth offering, it will be reflected on tomorrow's update.
