Post Na/GloPoWriMo 2018


National Poetry Writing Month was the inspiration for starting this blog in 2014, and, as I enter my fifth year here at WordPress, I’ve just met that challenge for the fifth time.  With the 30 days of National/Global Poetry Writing Month behind us, I managed to post a poem each day. Some days I posted as many as 3 times, for a total of 48 posts. 14 of those posts contained a total of 26 haiku. I met the prompts of Maureen Thorson at for 19 days (and twice for one of the prompts) and relied on other prompts for most of the remaining days.

As usual, I enjoyed reading the prompt responses at, and I made a point of reading at least 90% of those on most of the days. Reading and writing took a lot of my time, but I’ll likely fall back into my routine of (way) less than a poem per day for awhile.

Thank you to everyone who has read my poetry this past month and to all who commented. Those comments are a nice dose of encouragement.

  1. This was my first go-around. I’m not even sure what possessed me to throw my hat in the ring for NaPoWriMo, but I’m glad I did. It led me to some interesting blogs, including yours, that I would have completely missed out on otherwise.

  2. And an excellent outpouring of verse. I myself felt totally blank yesterday, and will also certainly be posting less often now. As Merril said, there is all that I neglected in every day life to catch up on, including a lot of the regular blogs I like to visit. I am in awe that you have managed all 30 days every year. This is my first time. (K)
