Kinkwizard_95 said:Okay one last question.. are the prompts on the “stomp the prompt” comp, what we are to use for our official #poems in the actual NaPoWriMo competition? Or is that a separate thing altogether?

No. The prompts are optional and there in case you need inspiration. I will mention; however, that to win the prompt comp means an extra 🏆!

Who will be first across the line?! Historically it's been the Philippines! And it may still be! But we're coming up on England, Portugal, Scotland, South Africa, and I know I'm forgetting someone else in about 30 minutes!

Reminder: REGISTRATION IS STILL OPEN BUT CLOSES MIDNIGHT, PDT TONIGHT!

Can we enter our NaPo poems into competitions?

Yes. We ask that you post it in the challenge first.

My location is Johannesburg, South Africa, located in Time Zone GMT-5.

Wow, I see you have made it, PatsonTheFriend. You have long shown interest and now you are part of the real deal. NaPo is a challenging challenge, but let not that deterr you. I look forward to you being among the 30 {personal prediction) who will make the finish line.

My image is supposed to be a figment of the reader's imagination... is that OK?!

Seriously... I posted my offering on the relevant thread first, without an image, and then in my own catalogue, complete with the image that inspired it.

We don't care what you do on your personal page! Seriously, we don't check personal pages. However, the challenge needs to remain just poetry, per the guidelines.

I was just thinking about something - someone who will be receiving their 5th year trophy this year will already receive two trophies; however, should they win the Stomp the Prompt Comp they would receive THREE! Isn't that exciting?! Speaking of trophies - the above is the specially designed 2024 NaPo Trophy from Webmiss!

The trophy is beautiful, and whoever is dutiful will receive it and have a pantry full of wonderful, bountiful memorabilia.  Gotta get myself one, or even two this year!
