Can you spare a word?

The following was posted on the Read, Write, Poem site. This is part of an yet-to-be announced "assignment". A writing prompt, I assume.

Poet, Can You Spare a Word (or 50)?

This is part two of Welcome to NaPoWriMo Day! For future use this month (don’t worry, you’ll find out why soon enough), please use the above statement in an email to a poetry pal. Ask someone you know well, or ask someone you barely know (check out our participant page, perhaps, or the sign up list in the intro post here) for a list of 50 words. Feel free to ask for interesting words. Ask for wild words. Ask for mean words. All you really need is a list of 50 words and a poet (or two) willing to provide them. Stay tuned for your 50-word assignment(s)!


Can you provide me with a few words? Leave them in the comments. I'll use them in some way related to the prompt when it is posted and share the results with you. Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I don't follow rules very well, but I'll try to do it without stretching the boundaries into something unrecognizable.

Thanks for your contribution. Think of it as a contribution to National Poetry Month.

What fun. Here you go, to help you reach your fifty: acclimate, harrowing, spooked, bubbly, charismatic, hilarious

Thanks! More than half way there. But readers, please don't stop if there are 50 by the time that you read these comments. I'll give away some of my words if anyone wants them!

Okay! Here are some: proximity, sorrow, shame, secrecy, bitter, charm, invisible.

Good luck, Cam - this should be a tricky one!

Oh, how fun! Now I have words from across the Atlantic, as well as from NZ (Kay)! Thanks Litlove, UnRelaxed and Smithereens!

Let's see what comes to mind: hitchhike, sorrowful, rain, orchid, snowball, daydream, lollipop, ice cream, peanut butter. (Am I hungry??)
