Pull up a cup of Joe. Write and read. Enjoy each other.
This week’s words came from Lone Wolf, by Jodi Picoult. I started the book on Thursday. They were quick picks from one of the first chapters. If you’ve read it, I hope Luke survives. Don’t tell me!!!
The Whirl was busy last week. Holy cow! We had over 40 participants. If any of you newbies want to subscribe to the early words, send me an e-mail with “early words” as your subject. If you’ve already done that, and nothing happened, do it again, I likely lost your e-mail during that nasty time when WordPress sent out too many comments….I deleted emails indiscriminately in my frustration. Welcome, we’re glad to have you here. The diversity of writing among us is amazing, when you consider that all of our Whirl pieces come from a common word bank.
Write on, Wordlers,
Yes! Finally someone writes about eating foods.
I know I’m late to the party on this one, but I’m working backwards and working the Wordles as i have time.
Here’s my effort –
I finally banged something out for this prompt…nothing more frustrating than a non-cooperative muse! And it sounds like mine follows much the same gloomy theme as many others…
I am a new follower…I think. I love writing prompts.
These words turned out to be the perfect vehicle for a poem I wanted to write for a friend. Thanks once again for the opportunity!
Great prompt. Mine is up.
Here’s mine! Just back from 2-week holiday, severely jetlagged so can’t vouch for what came out of my brain this time. http://miskmask.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/the-sunday-whirl-wordle-59-the-gargoyle/
A strange image with a bit of a shiver and a glint. Nice one
Tried to come up with something humorous. 🙂
This one wrote itself.
A friend recommended this site to me, and tonight is my first time trying it on for size.
I must admit I’m a little nervous…..
I posted early today before dashing off for the day…finally have a minute to come back to read.
As always, Brenda, thanks for keepin’ us whirlin’!
I looked at those words and my first reaction was an accident, but then I went off and thought and came up with something totally different…
My first Wordle response! See http://gerrygwilson.com/2012/06/03/sunday-wordle/. I’ve used a similar exercise with writing students to help free them up a bit from preconceived notions about how and what to write. As I said in introducing this first Wordle post on my blog, I’m not used to putting “raw” words out there, but maybe a little risk is good. I enjoyed it. I’ll be back for more!
I absolutely love that you got these words from that book which I also just finished reading … in a way I’m glad I didn’t know that before I wrote because I would’ve written a different poem entirely. On the other hand … I love writing about wolves … Mine, like viv’s has doom written all over it, as she so eloquenty puts it. I may give it at another go now that I know where the words are from …In the meantime, “Deep Tissue Bruising” can be found here:
Thanks for the words and the effort Brenda!
Inspring words, Brenda. Thank you! 🙂
It’s a beautiful, sunny morning here in the bay area. Will be going swimming later today, so I have some time this morning to read. Looking forward to reading some dark poems apparently – which mine might be included in as well.
Happy swimming Richard!
Thanks Brenda!- I am interested in that book – I need things to read for an upcoming surgery, The words took off in a gallop for me and then stopped to graze. Sometimes my wordle seems to fall asleep.
WELCOME to all the new wordlers!! I will be around to read later today and tomorrow.
Back after several weeks. I’ve missed you all and reading the great work here! Off to read!
Glad you are back! It has been tough to keep up reading every one as Whirl expands exponentially!
It’s not even 8:30 Sunday morning here in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico and already there are 19 links up! I’ll probably get around to writing–and linking–later in the day (it’s a fine list of words this week), but in the meantime, I’ll savor a few offerings from others. After all, savoring is what vacation is all about! 🙂
I know I could not believe this!!!
Crazy, eh! I’m having a busy morning reading already…and trying to write a piece for The Mag. LoL Gotta love Sundays!
Thank you, for the words Brenda!! I’ll be round to read this afternoon everyone!! Smiles to all!
Good Morning. Something I did not think of: I gave the password to read the protected poem, wondered why three people have asked me for it. After all it’s quite clear. Are you laughing at me yet? That’s right, the password is in the post.
Don’t faint I actually have a short piece this week… thanks to the constraints of the Lune form.
As for mood…could go any way you’d like I suppose 🙂
Breakfast and chores first then back to read. Happy Sunday and good week to all.
Way to go on the 40 joing in Brenda 🙂 The whirl is growing!~!
Enjoyed these words. Thanks …have a great Sunday everyone.
How original. I really felt the atmosphere. Good old Leo!
Thanks for the words, Brenda. Happy Sunday!
I found hope and potential in these words. Must have been an optimistic mood I was in.
I’m glad you were optimistic, Walt. My pieces were dark this week. I’ll hop on over to your place first. 🙂
I love the ‘fluttery flesh’. Great expression,Brenda!
I just love where these wordles take me. Thank you!
Happy Sunday, all. I look forward to reading your poems. Brenda, I linked twice in error. Please remove my duplicate link.
I felt somewhat similar Viv, then just let it go for a bit. Glad I did. Something happened in the interval and the words started lining up in their own peculiar fashion. Thanks Brenda and happy writing to all,
I hope everyone else writes more cheerful poems than mine! Those words have doom written all over them.
