I'm having a really hard time. I've NEVER done free verse and I'm kinda frustrated with the whole romance thing right now. I hope my entry works though :D

Think of free verse like you're talking to Shakespeare, you don't rhyme, or really say anything super intelligent, but you're speaking eloquently with your shoulders back and head high :) romance is all about saying what you feel, without talking about what you mean! Imagine putting it through the "wonderland" filter, Alice doesn't know much about what she's going on but she talks with a little pout and a bit more pomp! :D

I already did. Search for "The healer and the three moons" in the "scratch that" folder. Finishing it doesn't lower my worries, though...

Free-verse defined is
"Poetry that does not rhyme or have a regular meter"
So, no. Sorry.

Thank you for accepting my through the first round! I was wondering... if I have written a Romantic work JUST recently (after this was posted) but it also is fitting for another groups contest... can I still put it in here? I do not write much romance and this is poetry, free verse, romance... it fits perfectly but i have already submitted it to the other contest. I hope it can be accepted here too!

You're most welcome!

I'm very sorry, but we're not accepting works created for other contests. The poem must be specifically created for this one.

But, you never know! Maybe the one you write for this one will be better than the other one you wrote! :D

NotenSMSK Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
That is optimism but it is not really convenient for me to write on the same topic in the same style :( I will look into it... it does not have to be hardcore Romance right?

iChrno Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Nahh. Romance is such a broad topic.

Think about it. I'm sure you'll come up with something. Love isn't always human to human, you know. :)
