You Might Not Know Me, But…

Whenever you read a book, do you ever wonder if the characters within its pages are reading you back? Perhaps inviting you to join a faerie dance, or to celebrate their victories… or blaming you for their failures, or laughing while showing teeth because they did something awful and you just read and watched and did nothing to stop them.

On day 5 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, address your poem to a fictional character or a historical figure. Please cite the title of the book, where your character appears, so that we can say hello (or I’m sorry) if we need to. If you choose a historical figure, do tell us his or her name.


* Leave a link to your poem, as a comment. Include the title of your entry, and the direct link of your post. Example: “NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015”: Visit other Wicked Darlings and comment on their yum. They might visit you back (it’s polite).

* If you use this prompt, please link it to your post. And if you are feeling extra delicious, link your poem to the main entry. Show others where to go. Spread the word. Linking back to the source brings smiles to the faces of killer dragons. Seriously.

*P.S. My apologies for being a tad late tonight. But my computer flashed me with the blue screen of death, the post I was drafting went poof… and I had to write it again.

  1. Yes, Gina! I don’t know why or how, but when I tried to fix it, they all disappeared and I couldn’t get them back. I will have to re-type them in sometime today or tomorrow. Have to go paint at my mother-in-law’s house today.
