Hey TTH look at the date!
It’s March 10th, is it too late?

See, Rhyming Review day is my total fav
I’m happy to get outta my RL cave
To review in rhyme & limerick,
I’ll post some verses up quick!

But alas! Thar be no news on the homepage!
Leaving me pacing like a rat in a cage.
Be there no rhymes for two-thousand-twelve?
Has this fun idea been placed on the shelves?

Say it ain’t so, Jrabbit the Wise,
To keep it alive is what I advise.

After all, (W)hat (W)ould (S)pike (D)o?
(…well besides drinking blood & writing a haiku!)

Moi, forget? C'est impossible!
Recalling this date is exceeding easy.
Not, alas, through any great mental feat -
The code of the site makes it automatically repeat!

"Ode to my Nibblet,"
Damn! Nothing rhymes but giblet.
If my attmpts to rhyme are in vain,
at least I'll know that I'm still sane.

Stupid Daylight Savings go me up early this morn
So I booted up my computer, as is the norm.
Went to the TTH homepage & red struck my eye
Why, a message from me? Good thing I ain’t shy!  Wink

And so my darling TTH, beware the Ides of March
The 14th brings enough pleasure to make ye arch.
Prepare thouselves by writing and updating your fics
So on Wednesday we can have from plenty to pick!

Review, review, review! In sonnet or haiku!
This tradition is annual, you what to do  Smiley


Thanks jrabbit  Grin

Happy Rhyming Review Day everyone!!

Here's my personal author's note for the day:

Many an author is a review whore,
Clicking ‘refresh’ as they wait for more.
We’re ecstatic when you review after you read;
For us feedback is a primal need.
So today please celebrate Rhyming Review Day,
By taking a moment to have your say.
We’ll cherish your rhymes like Gollum with the One Ring,
For even the shortest reviews make us feel like a king!

 Wink

May you rhyme and read rhymes often for today!

I haven't written much these days,
Nary a poem, story, or limerick,
My muse is a fickle bitch she is,
And in the darkness, in so many ways,
that I glimpse the spark of word
But sadly it all turns to piss,
And lost to the block all too quick,
Rhymes, unsaid, unwritten, unheard.

Unlike others, I'm not gonna squeeze something out just to see rhyming reviews. Quite the opposite, in fact; I have something I'm going to hold until tomorrow or Friday. Mostly because I never know how to reply to rhyming reviews. Rhyming comments? I suck at those.

EDIT: Tomorrow is Thursday. Ergo, tomorrow or FRIDAY. Friday. Gotta get down on Friday.

Reviewing in rhyme!
What an Awesome surprise  Cheesy
Will this happen often?
From dusk to sunrise?

I must admit though,
It's quite a challenge.
Rhyming a message?
It's difficult to manage.

But it's totally worth it,
So to whom this idea came:
I would like to thank you,
And wish you much fame! Grin

While I am great at listening to and reading rhymes, writing them is a whole other animal.

All the talk about rhyming though, brought to mind the image of the Scoobies rapping out a slightly altered version of Public Enemies "Fight the Power" (with its chorus of "We've got to fight the powers that be.")

No problem, actually I take it as a compliment that something I wrote would give someone else inspiration.

YAY! Now, all I have to do is wait until it comes back out of my head. And see what comes out with it. There is literally no telling what form it might take.
