NaPoWriMo

Just found out about Napowrimo - the poets answer to Nanowrimo, November, which is National Novel Writing Month. Well NaPoWriMo is April, just a week away, and while the novelists among us crank out a 50,000-word novel each November, this spring a bunch of poets will set a goal of a poem a day for the month. I signed up, but am still nervous about being able to live up to it. I had a 20,000 word start on NaNoWriMo a couple of years ago, and STILL haven't finished that sucker. Oh, well, it's motivation, right? I'll do my best to post a poem a day for thirty days - starting in a week. Feel free to nudge me all you want!

NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, is an annual project in which participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April.
NaPoWriMo was founded in 2003, when poet Maureen Thorson decided to take up the challenge (modeled after NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month), and challenged other poets to join her. Since then, the number of participants has gotten larger every year, and many writers’ organizations, local, national and even international, organize NaPoWriMo activities.

I look forward to your NaPoWriMo contributions! Just remember, it isn't about creating masterpieces, just writing something and pushing yourself creatively.
