WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN WEEK

I’ve asked the experts to put a poetry writing spell on you! This is our 200th Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge! Happy Poetry Writing!

It’s the fourth week of the month! Are you ready for a theme prompt? Marsha Ingrao from last month’s challenge picked the theme.

On the Monday before the next challenge, I’ll select someone to choose next month’s theme.

For Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge, you can write your poem in the forms defined on the Poetry Challenge Cheatsheet:

Here are some great sites that will help you write your poetry and count syllables

synonyms.com 

This site even has a link so you can install the extension on Google Chrome.

thesaurus.com

For Synonyms and Antonyms. When your word has too many syllables, find one that works.

writerlywords.com

Find out how many syllables each word has. I use this site to compose my poems. You can cut and paste your poetry into the box. Click the Count Syllables button below the box. This site does the hard work for you.
