#atozchallenge: The YOWL of a writer

There was Whitman's YAWP. And Ginsberg's HOWL. I give you now my very own

writer's YOWL

Whitman sounded his "barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world" in joy, in celebration of himself and of the life he contained. Ginsberg's Howl is the euology of a generation--a lament and a call to arms all in one.

My yowl is neither. It's not meek, but its assertiveness is born of desperation rather than celebration or indignation.

Is this challenge over yet?

  1. Hi Guilie .. it is now - and you can yawl like a banshee or just plain gasp in awe of crossing the finishing line ... it's been great meeting up .. and see you around as we move forward with our transformation 21st century style! Cheers Hilary

  2. I've enjoyed reading your A-Z Guilie, can't comment on them all but I do wish Blogspot let you 'like' something as Wordpress does! Never mind... SD
