I decided my writing gears needed a bit of a kick start and hunted out the tried and tested poetry meme. The quotes were especially random this time, but it still worked:

1: Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.

2: Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

4: Bravo! Have a cookie.

1. Doctor Who
2. Dungeons & Dragons
3. Press Gang
4. Public Eye
5. Spooks

I had a sandwich, a banana and a bit of chocolate afterwards, though, not a cookie. And I was being very careful not to let my mind explode. It does that too often anyway, these days.
