Gosh, that was easy!
I've never "edited" my themes before, although I've modified them in general edit.

Thank you, Ahavati.


You're very welcome, Cabcool.  The site has some pretty cool features that manage to surprise even the veteran members.

Good morning, Participants!  Congratulations, if you see a check beside your ( invisible ) little rocket ( or lollipop ), you've successfully made it to day seven, which will bring you 1/4th of the way home if you make it through!

EPISODE 7/30

"Have no fear," said James T. Blaze in his duct taped Captain's chair. "We can engage the Warped Drive and be on the other side of the Universe in a few minutes!"

However, Spock-josh was apprehensive about taking any unnecessary risks.

"But Captain, without a properly calibrated End Stop Mechanism, there is a ninety-three percent likelihood of punctuating the fabric of Space and Time and creating a wormhole."

Rear Admiral DUG was very excited by the prospect!

"Sir, it's not that kind of a wormhole," Warfyroo whispered in his ear.

Dispirited, DUG sank back into his chair.

"No buts, no guts, no coconuts nor glory!" Blaze declared and hit the BIG GREEN BUTTON.

Being color blind, he pushed the BIG BLUE BUTTON instead and emptied the trash compactor. A few moments later, T'PoetsRevenge returned from her spacewalk covered in upside down pineapples and fostered banana peels.

Nurse Daisy Chapel giggled.

Commander Deannavati - aware that Poetry waits for no man, woman, or worm - pushed the actual BIG GREEN BUTTON and the USS Stanza lunged into Typer Space.

"Goddammit!" hollered Poppykat through her communicator. "I'm still on Rhymulus! Is anyone going to beam us the fuck up?!"

GULP.

Just then Redshirted chezz disappeared down the throat of a giant Venus flytrap on the other side of the sign that warned DO NOT FEED THE PLANTLIFE.

"Uhh ... make that just me," she said.

And it was AFTER doing a u-turn in the parking lot of the Typer Space Bar, returning to fly over Rhymulus, abd beaming aboard Poppykat - then Then THEN! the Poet Wardens were FINALLY on their way to recovering the twice stolen Muses and once stolen Webmistress.

phew

How is it going for all you Poetfleet Cadets and Wardens?

Are you taking full advantage of the benefits built into the Rules?

Right. If anything, after a week, you should be realizing a thing or two: firstly, you can write poetry daily regardless of how you feel or your situation; and, secondly, you can do this by sheer determination rather than inspiration.

I posted a quote recently that said if you wait for inspiration then you're not a writer but a waiter.  Conquer the need to write in the future not by inspiration alone ( if it comes certainly take advantage of it ), but by the determination that you have shown this week.

On my 7th entry I accidentally put the title on it that was for tomorrows entry. I had some ideas scribbled down but I write something new everyday and some times I come up with a working title ahead of time and have several of them saved to my blog un-posted then I copy and paste the text and post the title separately. So I accidentally used tomorrow's title for today's post then went back and changed it. I guess I wanted to explain all this at the risk of seeming over-explanation so whoever reads tomorrows will understand I didn't post the same poem twice, just the wrong title initially. Thank you :)
