YOU HAVE 2 DAYS LEFT, THE CONTEST ENDS FRIDAY

I have a great idea for a contest, this isn't like any other contest I have done, but I want to give it a shot. "Your Name" is the name of the contest. I would like for you to use the letters of your first name to write a poem, I will use the letters Of mine to show you what I mean.

A ANIMAL IN THE NIGHT, THAT DOESN'T LIKE TO PLAY

M MY ADVICE IS TO STAY AWAY, IF YOU WANT TO LIVE ANOTHER DAY,

Y YELL AND SCREAM AND JUST RUN AWAY

I hope you can understand what I did here, your name will be spelled out on the left hand side, this may be confusing, but I would like to try it, I love the idea myself. feel free to ask questions. I only added the extra letters to help show you how I wanted it done, you don't have to do it like  I did.

So, an excercise in acrostic... I like yours. I've wrestled a few animals in the night that didn't like to play and lived to see the dawn! But running away never was my style...(smile)

One more thing :) does the poem have to describe yourself or can it be about anything just as long as it starts with the letters of your name?

if you read the journal I posted about the contest, all it says is you have to have your name spelled out on the left hand side.

do the letters have to be in the right order?
like (I'll use your name as an example, hope you don't mind) instead of 'amy' could it be 'mya' or 'yam'? :)

yes they do, it has to spell out your name, just like all the others have done, go look at the folder that may help you. Use your name,

Is it supposed to be a simple acrostic with only one word to each letter, or can it be a whole line, like in the example?
