All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, April 23, 2009
April is National Poetry Month.
Are you participating in the challenge?
British poet and playwright William Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564. Known as The Bard of Avon, Shakespeare wrote more than 150 sonnets and dozens of plays. His plays are generally listed in three categories: comedy, history and tragedy.
Today’s Meme Express prompt is threefold:
Pick one of these key words, or use all three. Or simply post your own comedic, historical or tragic entry.
Here are a few optional questions, just to get you started:
What is your favorite Shakespearean play? Why?
Do you generally prefer a comedy, history or tragedy?
Have you ever performed in a Shakespearean play?
What is your favorite Shakespearean sonnet? Why?
Have you ever written a sonnet? Why not try it today?
What makes good comedy?
What do you like most (or least) about history?
Can you tell a creatively tragic story?
What sort of ending will you give it – sad or happy?
Perhaps this concept will inspire you to create a drawing, a poem, a short story, or a journal entry. Then return here to leave a comment with your link. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)
