first annual 'word doodlepalooza'
If you’ve read me for a while, you’ve noticed that I write “word doodles.” You’ve also become smarter, sexier and somehow immune to Disco Fever.
Word doodles, as described by the North American Bureau of Poetry, Sexual Harassment and Bringing Back The Fedora, are “shortish poem-y type deals that are usually always a first draft, but you can, like, move a couple lines around, if you think it makes it better and junk.”
And now I want to invite you to submit a word doodle of your own to THE FIRST ANNUAL WORD DOODLEPALOOZA.
I know. I know. You are thinking, “But, Peter, I don’t write doodles.” “I am shy.” “I’m a bit of a bleeder.”
And that is totally cool. We can post your doodle anonymously, if you like. I’ll probably credit you as “Joe the plumber.”
Also, if you are worried about comments, we can shut them off for your post.
This is a safe place.
Despite my silly intro, I am serious about this. I want to see what you all come up with. EVERY ONE OF YOU. Even if you don’t have a blog, you can, and should, still submit.
You might be surprised by how amazing it feels to put them out there.
I’d like to start this on Monday, so get doodling. It will last as long as there are doodles to post.
You can e-mail them to me at peterdewolf(at)gmail.com
Please use the e-mail subject line “Sorry to interrupt, but I am a dethroned Nigerian King.” I TOTALLY always read those first.
Your ass looks spectacular in those jeans,
