#1 of 365 Day Collage Poetry Challenge

Okay, I decided to start afresh. See if I really can go 365 days straight with collage poetry. My head is back in my novel in progress, Diary of the Future. I attended a writing workshop on the weekend and received very encouraging feedback. I have a deadline in a month's time for a contest, so my mind is now with Nicky and her best friend Mel, boyfriend who needs to be renamed, and his ex- Sonya Scrag.

Nicky is a collage poet. She carries bags of words to school with her and makes collage poems at lunch time. I want to include some collage poetry in the novel. This may be one of them:

Teenage public spat
clueless girls dishing it out
performing for public attention
dirty tricks claws are out
Gossiping, snooping, gloating
much of it jealous dead air
a shortage of class
fashion competition
got nothin' to wear
damned silly ostracism
