In a blast of inspiration (or was it snow??).  I've come up with this unique idea.

I need 26 poets (yes, that's right 26 of you. . .) for this challenge. . .

Please sign up here. . . and, when you sign up, please choose a number between 1 and 26.

Details will follow. . . thank you. . .

Ok I'm in . I'll be 25 I've always wanted to be the penultimate one...But if you make me write a verse or line using the letter "Y" I may have to kill you.

OK Gang. . .here are the rules. . .

Kethry hit the nail on the head. . . this is an Alphabet challenge. . . the numbers that you picked corresponded to a letter in the alphabet. . . but, I put all of the letters in a hat, and pulled them out one at a time. . . and assigned each a number. . . so, you won't be using the letter that you probably thought that you would be using. . . (isn't that COOL???   )

Now, the rules are simple. . . Every word in your poem must start with the letter that you're assigned yes, every word. . . and, you cannot use symbols (like & or +) or numbers. . .

The poem must be a minimum of 10 words or five lines, whichever comes first. . . and, you can use any form that you would like. . .

Ok. . . here are your assignments. . .

Titia: F
Charisma: K
Siofra: L
Amigo: Y
RosePetal: N
faterider: Q Good luck!!  
Krawdad: O
serenity: P
SEA: J
Duncan: M
anonymous female: W
Tracey: T
Bec: R
Greeneyes: V
Kethry: G

Ok. . . those are all the letters that we have assigned right now. . . if you know someone else who would be interested, send them here. . . please post your poems in Open. . . thank you. . . and good luck!!!

(oh, btw, there's a challenge in here for me as well. . . tell you more about that later. . .   )
