National Novel Writing Month (sort of)

Friendly readers (who exist mainly in my imagination);

I fully intend to participate in National Novel Writing Month tomorrow-Nov 30th. I will be writing poetry instead of prose, with no intentions of meeting the word requirement.

Now, I know you're about to tell me about National Poetry Writing Month, and rightly so.  You might suggest that NaPoWriMo fits my needs better- but I cut my teeth on NaNoWriMo many years ago, and I enjoy participating with my writerly friends who (for the most part) are prose writers (or mostly prose writers, or graphic novel writers turned prose writers for the duration of November, or kindly fauns with a penchant for words).  Or maybe I didn't realize there was a NaPoWriMo until today... You know, whatever.

Either way, I'm excited!  Ready to be back on the wagon!

So here's the game plan: I have planned themes for each day of the week.  I'm going for 2 poems a day, for 30 days.  Obviously, I'll update here.

  • Sunday Historical People Prompt
  • Monday Picture Prompt
  • Tuesday New/Old Writer Response Prompt
  • Wednesday Art Prompt
  • Thursday Form Prompt
  • Saturday Geographic Prompt
