    NaPoWriMo anyone?

    Modelled after NaNoWriMo, NaPoWriMo challenges poets, fools and masochists to write a poem a day for thirty days. Daily prompts are listed on the website, starting today. I'm going to try and give it a go and be happy if I get even half done! Anyone else...?

And maybe there'll be a different darkness tomorrow, but you can live through that, too, and you can make the light come, and the darkness go away. It doesn't matter how many times the darkness comes. There is always hope for something better." ~Robert Jordan

    I had hoped that pretending to get pumped via capital letters would turn to real enthusiasm. I am struggling.

    I will do it, too. Seems like good practice.

    Might just be a haiku some days, though.

    OH NO! I left it late last night to start and had every intention of struggling also, but then me other arf came in and annoyed me which gave me a way of connecting to the quote I'd been given as prompt. So, I suppose that was good...?! I'm hoping my efforts get more like poems and less like garble as the month goes on though.

    Yay! After I committed word-garble last night, I came back to it briefly and tried a haiku that worked much better. It's a very forgiving format to the time-constrained.

    It's been fun so far... two days in and I have my haiku from a random prompt generator and an etheree about a Japanese mythological spirit! Today's challenge is to write a charm for/against something.

    NOTICE! I have started a thread in the Poetry Workshop so we can share poems there, if we want. Though people could also share poems here. Anyway, here is the thread:
    NaPoWriMo Workshop Thread

    I have been falling down on this a little already! However, yesterday I wrote a lame little haiku for the ekphrasis one, and I wrote a little poem this morning (without the prompt) that I don't totally hate, so I will post it over in that other thread I just mentioned.
