Competitive Poetry: Sonnet vs. Sonnet

The contest has officially come to a close, and Inkpot has posted her sonnet too, titled: Mal Content, so go ahead and check it out. It’s quite good. Who is the real winner of this contest? Well, the way I see it we’re both winners, since we both wrote a sonnet this week, while obeying a number of restrictions. Or, if it tickles your fancy, you can pick a winner.

That about wraps it up for sonnet vs. sonnet. I rather like the notion of having weekly challenges – something Inkpot came up with. Therefore, I hereby extend forth an invitation for anybody to challenge me to a writing duel. I prefer poetry, as they tend to be fixed forms with fixed lengths, but I’m open to just about anything. So bring it on, people! Attack me if thou durst!

You are the winner Mal, your sonnet is much better than mine. However, I feel I am a winner too because you got me to write a poem and I haven't done that in years! Yay.

Now, as you mention another challenge, I feel it is only fair that I challenge you to write a prose story of no more than 300 words by next Friday. Theme, certain words, genre etc to be determined by you. What do you say??? :D

You're on!

Er, sorry to get back so late - I've had a rather busy week, scholastically. Two weeks in fact. Maybe we can coordinate this for the first Friday of March?

Oh, and the theme: Writer's Block. We should both write a story about writer's block. Yes, I came up with that just now because I couldn't come up with anything else, but I think it could work.
