#verseday is a Twitter hashtag I've come up with to promote poetry writing. Participants must draft poems by noon Eastern today. The resulting poems can be submitted anywhere, including The 5-2: Crime Poetry Weekly and NoirCon's First Annual Poetry Contest.
Even if you've never written a poem before, you're invited. Taking the time to think poetically can help your creativity on other projects. My topic this week is being late.
Write a poem about being late by noon today, December 30. Incidentally, The 5-2 is accepting love- or passion-themed crime poetry if you wish to tie the three elements together.
