Writing prompt of the day: Write an anagrammatic poem.

An anagram is a word spelled out by rearranging the letters of another word. There are multiple ways to write an anagrammatic poem, but today’s challenge is to write an anagrammatic poem of a one word title like Vowels by Christian Bök.

  • Pick a word with a good mix of vowels and consonants.

  • Make a list of words that use those letters.

  • Mix and match words together until you start forming something

Remember that your challenge is to write a ROUGH draft in ONE day. The goal is to write, not to perfect.

Here is my rough attempt to write an anagrammatic poem.

During my fun with the word mullet, a crazy character emerged who is slightly obsessed with his mullet, and because he desires for everyone to meet it, he experiences some awkwardly silent situations. Plus, he seems slightly drunk to me (‘ut who knows!).

MULLET

Mule met me.

Let tell, let tell.

“Mullet, meet mule.”

Let tell, let tell.

Mute mullet,

Mute mule,

Melt me.

“Umm…”

Emu met me.

Let tell, let tell.

“Mullet, meet emu.”

Let tell, let tell.

Mute mullet,

Mute emu,

Melt me.

“Umm…”

Mutt met me.

Let tell, let tell.

“Mullet, meet mutt.”

Let tell, let tell.

Mute mullet,

Mute mutt,

Melt me.

“Umm…”

Let mule mull!

Let emu mull!

Let mutt mull!

Let mullet mull!

‘ut let me tell.

Okay, now it’s your turn! Once you are done, share your rough draft in the comments below. Sharing your draft in a safe place will help you be accountable, so you actually write something every single stinkin’ day.

Keep satisfying your writer soul by writing!
