2005-10-28 [angel dragon]: can I write it in my gest book or diary?

2005-10-28 [Charybdis]: Well, you can't write anything in your guestbook, but you could write in your diary if you wanted to, I suppose... although you'd still have to add it to Halloween Poetry 05, Page 2 for it to be counted as an entry :)

2005-10-28 [angel dragon]: so when i finish writing my poem on my diary what do i do

2005-10-28 [Charybdis]: Then you read CNETG9 to learn how to edit a wiki-page, then add it to the wiki that you get to if you click the link in my last comment.

2005-10-28 [angel dragon]: WHERE is the cnetg9 is cause im new here

2005-10-28 [Charybdis]: Click the link in my comment, and it'll take you there.

2005-10-29 [Karmathious]: that's the best way to write poetry...cuz then it just comes to you as you're typing. ^_^

2005-10-29 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Are prose-stories (short or long stories written in poem form) allowed?

2005-10-29 [Charybdis]: "2. Length: ... Anywhere from 8-35 lines is acceptable." So if it's <35 lines, and qualifies as poetry, I suppose so.

2005-10-29 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Thx
