100 Titles

Here is the complete list of poems. Finally. I’ll do a reflection post on this in a few days but for now here are all of the titles with links to those that are available to read. Not all of them have been put online – partly because I had overestimated how many people would be online today so it was looking a little like I was spamming Twitter and Tumblr (especially when IFTTT decided to catch up on twenty messages in the space of a minute!). The other reason is that I want to keep a few back so that if I decide to make these into a collection not all of them will be old news and there will be a few surprises and treats tucked away inside.

    Congratulations on completing this fascinating challenge – I hope that you are as pleased with the outcome as your readers surely are: I have certainly enjoyed following your poems, and am looking forward to reading those yet to be published! And for your next challenge, should you decide to accept it, how about either a) a similar thing but using album titles, or b) taking the music to different song choruses and completly re-writing a lyric. Food for thought! Thanks V, and take care, Chris.
