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 napowrimo.net 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 napowrimo.net, 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)
