This week, we’re waxing poetic. It’s kind of that time of year, isn’t it? What with the changing of the seasons, and the pumpkin spice lattés, and everyone dancing on the precipice of despair for another summer gone and wasted. Mmm… pumpkin spice!
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be Shakespeare Dickinson to take on this challenge. All you really need is a basic understanding of syllables and the ability to count to seven. That’s right. We’re writing haiku.
Write workplace-related haiku. See how many haiku you can write by the end of the week.
We are very, very big fans of haiku and really hope folks will participate in the challenge. So, this week, we’re upping the Weekly Prize to a $20 Amazon gift card. For a chance to win, simply:
Email your haiku to us at HEY at FOLLOWMETOCERTAINDOOM dot COM, or post them to Twitter or Instagram with the #FMTCD hashtag.
If you’re at all intimidated by this challenge, we found a clip from South Park (probably NSFW) to remind you just how simple haiku writing can be:
Easy, right? You can do it!
We believe in you
You can write haiku
This is one now.
Have a frank and productive week, everyone!
