#NaNoWriMo & #NovPAD Day 5: Special Lies

And the Nose Keeps Growing by Maria L. Berg 2021

Today I was inspired to continue my ribbon and shadow experiment. I thought about how a “little white lie” can turn into a big lie. I also thought about how each time Pinocchio lied his nose grew.

November PAD Chapbook Challenge

The prompt is to write a special poem.

For today’s poem I revisited the mesostic method I first tried on Tuesday. I thought it would be a fun way to explore what I find special. I typed my journal pages from this morning into the Mesostic Poem Generator using SPECIAL as the spine word. I had it come up with seven mesostics hoping seven would be lucky, then selected and arranged the lines into my poem.

Spotting the Lie by Maria L. Berg 2021


Today I’m starting a new chapter. I’m going to play with a zoom in, like the beginning of a film when the view starts really wide and flies toward a city, then into the city, then zooms in on the main character in action. I’m going to play around with doing that with words: starting with an omniscient POV, then zoom closer and closer until the reader sees what my character sees, experiences his perceptions, and then gets inside his head. It should be fun.
