Poetry Prompts Day 24 - OctPoWriMo 2016

It seems there was a miscommunication about yesterday's post and I worked 11 hours so I didn't even notice. Sorry about that folks.

As I am exhausted beyond reason at the moment, I'm going to leave you with the definition of today's prompt: Fantastical - and you can choose one of them and write from there. I hope you have a wonderful week.

Fantastical Definition from

  1. I feel bad because I haven't had it in me to interact with the other participants. There is a lot of not so good stuff going on in my life at this time.

  2. hope you feel better today, something on Cappadocia :)

  3. Well, I've been sick with a bad cold and have fallen behind. Maybe today and tomorrow, the poetry will fly 'fantastically'. Posted two today. Hope to read more this afternoon. May your week go well.
