A few "fun facts" about the Poetry Slam:
*I started writing funny poems in 4th grade. Two have been published.
*I wrote a long funny poem - that turned into a story for a 6th grade project, then revamped it in 12th grade and got an "A" on it for a senior A.P. English project.
*I have NEVER written a serious/lovey/sad poem in my life. Only funny. (At least, I think they're funny).
So, here is the contest:
Comment on this blog (not facebook, but the actual blog) with an idea for the next subject of the Poetry Slam. We are going to test my creativity! One randomly selected commenter will be chosen and this Thursday's Poetry Slam will feature a funny poem about whatever you choose.
If you have your own blog, I'll even link back to it on the post!
*A vacation (I have one in mind about Disneyland already!)
I'll be honest, I'm kinda nervous about this.
Also, I really hope you will learn to love "The Slam" as much as I do.
Also, this is an opportunity for the 200 of you that show-up here everyday to let me get to know you a bit, since I think you may know me a bit already (unless that 200 is really just you, Mom?). I want to know who you are! I think I like you already...
P.S. - If no one enters this contest, I will still continue to do Poetry Slam Thursdays. Just FYI. This weeks PST may just be my first embarrassed, sad, angry poem - but don't feel it is in any way directed at any of you...
