Nonsense poems and prose
Posting Access:

A place to write nonsense poems, nonsense prose, and to do writing challenges.
This community is for sharing and appreciating nonsense poems, nonsense prose, and for doing challenges like "start with such-and-such sentence and make a nonsense poem from it," or "write something using all the following concepts" and so on.

Also a great place for just writing something random just to write, for those days you've got writer's block. The challenges would be good for that, too.

Poetry does not have to rhyme.


1. No hatred, no racism, no sexism, etc. Do not stereotype. Criticisms will be civil and constructive, or they will get called flaming. Flaming can lead to banning.

2. No flame wars, and no trolls. Trolls will be banned on sight. Flamers will get the hose. ("It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again.") Bear in mind, being a nonsense community, there may be some issues with knowing when there is a troll about, so we'll have to play it by ear.

3. Please have a sense of humor. Joking around in posts is not necessary, but people who can't take a joke are asked to either get a sense of humor or leave.

4. Be respectful of everyone, no matter their age, race, gender, sex, sexual preference, etc. etc. ad nauseum.

5. Anything not safe for work needs to be put under an LJ cut and a warning put on it in the subject or the cut itself. If you don't know how to do a cut, LJ's help thingy will help.

6. Any questions, ask the boss (me, fayanora @ yahoo . com) or one of the mods.

7. Everything is copyrighted by the original posters in the current year unless otherwise stated. Which really should be common sense, on the Net.

Also, may contain adult themes, as I don't want to limit anyone, and my own nonsense gets a little raunchy at times. Fourteen and over only please.
