Diamonds in the Rough
This Challenge has already generated enough heat in the form of vituperation – directed not only at the innocent Mr Diamond, but also at me, for daring to suggest this – that I'm almost sorry I came up with it.
I said almost. I never stay repentant for long.
In case you've forgotten, the idea was to be inspired by a lyric of Neil Diamond's. Inspired to write, draw, or compose something, that is. Not to insult the fiction editor.
Next time, I shall suggest Barry Manilow.
Minorvogonpoet has given us a treat – two1 poems inspired by Neil Diamond. (I believe her words were 'even a Vogon can do better than that.' Yep. That's why I suggested it, to get the juices flowing. Oh, and I suspect the influence of another poet here. But let the reader judge. Let's enjoy the ideas transplanted to another locale.
