  1. Perfect ! I love this format

    And still you wrote, and an acrostic poem too! Have a great day with that “nothing to write about” already written!

  3. Judy C.

    And for nothing to write about, you have a great slice. Happy Spring!

  4. I can see you took the Jane Yolen quote at the top of today’s TWT page to heart. It looks like you might have generated some ideas for tomorrow. What was in those photos? What did you read? Where did you read it? How are you prepping for your trip?

    I think you found a great topic. This is a great way for my students to use acrostic for writing when they are stumped about what to write. May I use you as a mentor text?

  6. HAH! * Applauds & Bows * When penning nothing is brilliantly penned.

  7. I love it and I think it’s perfectly crafted. Enjoy your day, Bob!

  8. This has been a real challenge for me as well this year…Love this approach.
    Thanks Bob.

  9. I think this is perfect! “Something from Nothing!”

  10. You just go to show, there is always something to write, even when you think there is nothing to write. You made it another day and you will again and again.

  11. You did it! I knew you’d be able to after the rundown of your week ahead. Keep us posted!

  12. You are SO inventive, Bob – plus, you always find a way to make us chuckle. Thank you!

  13. Loved this Bob. Really gives us a glimpse of your day – lots to write about after all!

  14. At first glance, you had me smiling. Clever way to overcome a slump. I loved it.

  15. This is the time so many are finding this bump in the road. I love how you swerved around it!
