    Hi all... :)

    As there are acrostics bubbling up around the PnQ site. I thought maybe we could have an acrostic post on our names...
    Giving us an insight into our personalities ,enjoyment, pet hates...and so on.

    Any authors up for this?

    ...if so I will get a new thread going :)
    Much love

    Michael :)

    Hi All,

    Okay the names that I have are;
    Mel-Liz
    Jaime
    Craig or Aries Rising
    Brenda
    Kitty Cat Lady
    Bluejay
    Em
    Andrea or Maple tree
    Larry.
    Milly

    Right then, I thought why not have a little competition to win a dream holiday for two....no just for the love :)

    So names of authors in an acrostic styled piece, please.

    I was thinking of prompts, but I feel its more interesting with your own thoughts, so
    however much you want to divulge about you; within your own name.
    I think that makes sense

    All completed poems you can send as a PM to me, by next Monday (give or take) poets don't like boundaries and rules, do they?

    When I have received all entries, I will post them all here for voting over the following week. If that all sounds okay with you, then lets get this show on the road :)

    Just to say that only because this competition has started today, any other poet who would like to take part, just add your name, before the weekend.

    Thanks.

    If I've missed anything tell me

    Much love and good luck :)

    Hi to all the swash-buckling Acrostic-teers

    Now at this stage I have received wonderful acrostics from:

    Larry
    Mel Liz
    Em (Emma)
    Brenda
    Milly
    Aries rising
    Blue jay
    Kitty Cat Lady

    I must say they are all so different and great to read, looking forward to posting them for voting, which they will all be on this thread by Wednesday (just a little more time for anyone who maybe away etc. But I hope that's fair enough will all.

    Good luck!
    Much love

    Michael :)

    And of course, they will all be anonymous

    ;8-)

  • Em replied to Larry Chamberlin
    2 months ago

    Larry has a point..

    How about you choose who does an acrostic about who to make it a anonymous if that's what you were after?

  • Michael replied to Larry Chamberlin
    2 months ago

    Mr Chamberlain,
    Are you taking the Michael :)

  • Michael replied to Em
    2 months ago

    Hi Em

    Yes the next acrostic could be about a member writing about another on PnQ.
    That could be fun :)
    ...and I get to choose, even more fun! Haha

    Hi all :)

    Okay just waiting for 3 authors now, if they are in before Wednesday ( just to keep the children quiet...Craig and Mel) haha! I will post them...

    So after posting all the acrostics of each author, please can you send me your top three by scoring 3pts for first 2pts for second and 1pt for third, ( I feel its makes it more interesting) and when I receive all your votes, along with the points I will post the winners and runners up (this time Wednesday next year) joking Craig :)

    In the event of a tie, well I will come to that if happens..

    So hope everyone is happy with that

    Much love
    Michael :)x

    I agree, sounds good. So is that this Wednesday, or 2 weeks from now, or um, the 3rd Wednesday of the 8th month in the lunar year where the birds all sing the same song Wednesday? Please clarify, thanks! Lol.

  • Michael replied to Brenda

    Miss Brenda,

    ... now let me see, no I'm afraid all those Wednesdays are taken up for 'Michael's free of ridicule days' hahaha..

    Who's silly idea was it to start this competition, I will have to have words!

    Okay all you lovely people, just to clarify...

    Wednesday 27th September 2017 (that's this year) at approx...1706hrs and a few seconds- Michael will post all acrostics on this thread (that's this one I am writing on now)...

    Hope this is bright, cheery and clear :)

    Much love
    as always x

    Hi all

    Okay I will be looking to close competition thread at midday today and post the winner and runner up later this afternoon.

    I am still waiting for Em to provide her votes. I have messaged Em and hopefully I will hear before deadline.

    However in this situation I am unsure what is fair to all....so if anyone has another suggestion before the deadline. Please let me know on this thread.

    With love
    Michael :)
