National Poetry Month is almost here!

This blog is mostly for poetry (even though I have been sadly slacking). April is a time when like National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November, many challenge themselves to write EVERY DAY in April. National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) since 2008 has meant for me a 30/30 challenge: 30 poems in 30 days!

In 2008 I worked a full time job but I still managed to write 70 (short) poems! In 2009 I was out of work and wrote 70 poems again! 2010 was not as productive, but in 2011 I was writing a poem a day ALL YEAR so I kicked it up a notch and wrote NINETY poems. I came far short of that in 2012 and 2013.

This year I will write at the VERY LEAST a couplet or haiku EVERY day in April. My real goal is to write all you wonderful blog followers an acrostic poem of your screen name as a thank you for your interest in my work and for your feedback.

If you would like to join the 30/30 poetry challenge and need some inspiration I strongly suggest going to Rachel McKibbens’ blog and checking out the prompts she has posted there over the years. SO GOOD. I have written some of my favorite poems from her prompts.

Happy poetry writing! ^_^
