Well, you’re near the end of April, of National Poetry Month, of NaPoWriMo!
Sigh … in relief, remorse, resolution …
Some of you have practiced writing daily and some have posted a poem daily. Some have made up your own rules and kept them or broken them. Some (like me) found you couldn’t stay with daily writing early on.
Some have even asked for a NaPoWriMoMoMo … well, tell you what: Read Write Poem is really All Poetry All the Time. So I guess the virtual answer to that is “Of course!” The practical answer is “Come visit anytime!” and make writing and reading poetry a part of a daily, weekly, monthly, or occasional routine. As it suits you.
And, as I noted in the Participant List post, here are a couple of questions. I’ll leave comments open for about three weeks (any longer than that and the spam machines do their work):
… will you be stopping by to visit Read Write Poem for ideas, information or prompts post-NaPoWriMo? (There is an end to April, dear poets!) … What would help next year … Is there a next year for your NaPoWriMo project?
Well done, all. No matter what you did, you practiced poetry.
In two weeks, Carolee will be back to regularly scheduled Poll Dances! So check out the latest poll — after you have sighed with relief at the end of April.
PS: January will be starting a post-NoPoWriMo meme at her site, Poet Mom, once the NapPoWriMo delirium is over. (May 1. Go take a look. )
