About a year ago, someone over at Big Tent Poetry suggested the site Language is a Virus. From that site, the words for this week’s wordle were taken from Charles Bukowski’s set of electronic poetry words. Here’s a link: Bukowski’s Words Play around at the site for a bit, words will thank you. As it is the third Sunday of the month, I threw in an extra word: granite (I’m winking at Magical Mystical Teacher).
The overwhelming majority of you like Mister Linky, so he will stay. I have a help ticket in to them, to figure out how to keep the links right below this post, rather than opening in a new window. Hopefully, by next week, that will be up and running. I’m a digital immigrant. The only reason I know technology as well as I do, is because I teach in a technology rich middle school. 🙂 My students know far more than I do. As for the delivery of the wordles….for now it will stay the same. The voting was neck and neck. I also checked several blogs who entered poems later in the week, and they received several visitors. Thank you for building this community. I put the words out there, but you guys make this an “us.” It’s keeping me writing, even when I feel dry.
If there is anyone who wants the words early, I am willing to form an email group and send them on Friday evenings to you. You can post them here starting Sunday, as usual, just let me know.
