It’s all changed – Written for the Be Inspired Writing Challenge


This week’s poetry form for the Be Inspired Writing Challenge is a Triquain. For details on how to write a Triquain click here.

I promised myself I would reduce the number of challenges I take part in during Camp NaNoWriMo, but it seems I like a challenge. To compromise, as I’ve done previously, I wrote the poem around Worlds Apart and the character of Audrey. I hope you enjoy it.

Everything has changed

It was an interesting one for me this week, and a kind of experiment. I planned out the poem, decided what I wanted to say and came at it from a completely different perspective.

Thanks for indulging me. I really enjoy taking part in these challenges, and if truth be told, this is the only time I write poetry. It’s a learning curve and one I enjoy from week to week.

How about you? What parts of your writing do you enjoy to work on the most?

Until next time



I love the feeling of desperation in this, very powerful! I wasn’t all that familiar with this poetic form either so thank you for highlighting it πŸ™‚

As for my writing, fiction was always my most comfortable area but I’m becoming more and more drawn to poetry in recent months. It’s amazing what a New Year’s resolution can lead you to.

    You were a born poet…that much is very clear from your work πŸ™‚ I look forward to reading more of your fiction and, of course, the poetry. Thanks for commenting πŸ™‚

      I’m honoured you think so. I can say the same about your writing – in fact, I just started working on The Conduit and I’m as intrigued as ever by your work. Can’t wait to read more. πŸ™‚

      Wow, my first one πŸ™‚ I’m flattered you would take the time! If you like James in the book – The Missing Link is the sequel. I think I mentioned once about a character I named without much thought to his role – that character is Barry and I think you’d like him. Anyway, I digress. Thanks so much – I value your continued support πŸ™‚

Hmm, I smell lots of backstory, drama and excitement bubbling up through those words. Interesting for a wanderer to expect to find destiny rather than home. I like all the rhyming and repetition, a lot of planning must have gone into this. Well done!!

So well written Mel! I enjoy reading your poems every week as you do writing for these challenges. I must say, you attempted this wonderfully and liked your chained Triquain. The thought you described through the verses is so intriguing and thoughtful! Thank you for participating in the challenge, I enjoy reading them πŸ™‚
