Well, I haven't updated here in quite some time and things are getting a little covered in cobwebs around these parts (and elsewhere), but we will chat about that some other time soon. In the mean time, it is National Poetry Month. Many of you know that I, along with many others, sometimes participate in the NaPoWriMo 30/30 Challenge in April = 30 poems in 30 days. Lots of amazing people I know will be doing this. Others will be doing variations - submitting 30 poems in 30 days, sharing a poem they love by someone else every day for 30 days, some sharing prompts, videos, writing advice, or even just committing to reading more poems. The point is, this month is bound to be a wealth of amazing poetry in some way or another. Whether you consider yourself a poet or not, I encourage you to get involved in some way.
As for me personally, I don't know if I will be posting directly here or on another blog or tmblr, but I am definitely going to give it a shot and I will link here either way. I've participated in NaPoWriMo about four times I think, and I've finished 30 poems half those times, but the thing is, no matter if I hit 30 or not, participating in this writing challenge has brought me to some of my best most cathartic work, it has grown me and connected me to myself in a deeper way every time, and, it has connected me to other writers and new poems and so much awesome. I value the experience of it so much for all these reason, no matter the numbers. Also, I just may be submitting some work this month as well. I haven't done that in a long time, and I think it's time to get loose from my own grip and meet some good things that are out there waiting for me. I'm looking forward to the journey, whatever it may be. I'm learning as I go. It would be great if you would join me. Happy National Poetry Month! Love.
