Day Three

I'm finally doing something right.  It is Day 3 and I'm posting my Day 3 poem.  Yay me!!!!!

Here's what we were supposed to do on Day 3:

Day 3

On April 3, 2011
Hello, everyone! I hope your writing is going well. It certainly seems that way, from all the activity on the participant sites!

Because April is National Poetry Month, there are a lot of poetry-related things going on besides NaPoWriMo. One I thought people might be interested in is InterNaPwoWriMo, or International Pwoemrd Writing Month, a project sponsored by visual poet Geof Huth. What’s a pwoermd, you ask? It’s a one-word poem! Sometimes they are made by shoving two words together to form an interesting new word, but there are a lot of ways of going about it. Here’s one from the oeuvre of minimalist poet Adam Saroyan: lighght. And one by Jonathan Jones: r(((((((bs.

Today, if you’re looking for a challenge, why not try your hand at a pwoemrd? They might look easy, but it’s actually pretty hard to come up with an interesting one – something that works visually and also makes some kind of sense.

Finally, our featured site for today should inspire you to believe that poetry can really be written about anything: Pete Roberts, a ceramics engineer, is writing a poem a day about masonry! 

Here's what I came up with:  (if you don't get it, highlight an inch or two past the pwoerd)
Ari+#/me(t*c)=x  It says 'arithmetic'
