Writing 201 was over and I was getting used to visiting E-mails and reading prompts’ notices everyday during the course. Since prompts served as guide for us, participants, Ben Huberman’s E-mails served as chaperon. It did not only guide us to the poetic path of composing but lead us how to think poetic and set prompts into poetic writings. The forms and devises to use were there to bring us into temptation of putting ourselves into the seats of seasoned poets and to stitch our necks with a poet’s head and think like poets. There were mistakes and blunders on the publishing and sharing process for the “new beginners” of the course but were fixed in time. Just like me committing two errors of the same mistake, or the other way around?
Since then, it left a void on my everyday mailings. So, to fill the gap, I made my own schedule of prompts within the month. These would kill the time thinking what I would write for the day just by looking into my prompts’ schedule of activities. Here’s it is. This is for 10 days only which is good for Week 01.

If you still have time to spare, you can accept on-line challenges and invitations from other bloggers. If your time won’t really fit into your daily chores just ignore those challenges and invitations. They will understand that time is limiting their participation. They are busy too like you attending family obligations. If other bloggers accept challenges and invites, it should be on a wider length of time for their submissions or no time limit as long as submissions are complete. We should understand that we’re all doing this for fun on a free time.
I have learned my lesson not to push myself hard enough to beat my self-imposed deadlines resulting in a blunder, misbeats of the heart, and constraints in my usual daily and social activities. If your previous submissions were on the average, if you rate yourself on that scale, other bloggers knew that you could make an excellent submission if given the chance of a serious platform and time.
