I don’t know why my parents filed annual report cards from school, certificates for extracurricular activities, photographs clicked ceremoniously on birthdays. I added peacock feathers, pressed leaves between pages, toys, diaries and books for keepsake. I plan to clean the attic today. I need space for my grown-up self. https://sammiscribbles.wordpress.com/2020/04/04/weekend-writing-prompt-151-keepsake/

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).
Today’s word is “tonight.”
Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

This week we are “writing away, and having a play, with rhyming words for you today” with Rhyme Time.
‘Rhyme Time’ focuses on the use of rhyme to build your writing piece. You will be given six rhyming words* and need to use all of them (but not limited to these) in your response, which should be a poetry form of your choice.
*Homophones can be used as alternatives to the challenge words.
Our rhyming words this week are:
- tyre (or tire)
- quire (or choir)
You may be thinking to yourself, How can I use rhyme in my writing?
Luckily, Kat at Literary Devices, has some examples for you.
