I decided to organize a weekly creative writing exercise in the office to sharpen the skills of the writing pool. Everyone takes a turn inventing an exercise or a prompt.

The only general rule we've been using is that it should be doable in an hour or so. We've also tried to keep things fun.

Please feel free to share your own exercise efforts by leaving a comment. You can do that at the end of each exercise by clicking on 'Share your own effort'. Enjoy!

Exercise 27 - Acrostic

Acrostic is a form of constrained writing for poems or other writings were the first letter, syllable or word of each verse, paragraph or other recurring feature in the text spells out another message.  This week's exercise was to write an acrostic poem using one's own name as the first letters of each line of the poem.  Below is what I was able to put together.


Orven Enoveso


Oh to be me, myself, uniquely I

Reflecting extremes, revolving deviations

Vice with virtues mixed, as saintly as sly

Excellence, mediocrity both bestridden

Nuanced greatness, delusion of mine


Explicitly muted as implicitly loud

Not wanting excess, neither settling for less

One day humble, the next day proud

Vulgarity and flair both possessed

Enjoying fully this adventure, life’s game

Sundry characters in one indeed, as surely as

Orven Enoveso is my name
