    I'll agree with what these guys said. Although I'd like to see poems that have a forward and backward narrative added to the prompt list.

    Eek! I might feel brave enough to try something that complex nearer the end of the month... maybe.

    I have way too much nonsense rattling around in my head. Order from the chaos, I have yet to see it, but hope remains. Always themes harkening back to an obscure reference point. I have one, but I tend to loose it. Not a good habit to have with poetry, but the hunt keeps me writing. It will be interesting to see what the rest of this month brings.

    Likewise. Some ideas I have demand to be written as prose, and they're fairly well-behaved, but the ones that want to be poems? They stick their tongue out and run.

    I find it tough doing this challenge generally, posting stuff I've hardly had time to work on or think about. It feels quite vulnerable in many ways, but liberating in others. I guess it is very similar to NaNoWriMo in that regard.

    Oh my, yes. All of this. I try to be softer on critique with NaPoWriMo pieces because I understand this.

    On the one hand, you can't overthink--you don't have time. On the other....my piece today has a cliche I'm not proud of but I don't know if I'll have time to fix it as I'm going to a friend's house to help her upgrade her computer.

    Well, that piece certainly took on a whole new meaning. It started off as a spoof... At least I've made peace with that particular issue. There is power in something as simple as a balance ball. Not quite sure where I would be without mine, not sure I really want to know.

    The stories I could tell...

    Sometimes the muse has her way with you. It just is.

    One story: My daughter's bf broke up with her about a week ago. They're teens, but have been together since middle school. This reminded me of my own middle-school bf, who was a real jerk, but a smart jerk (and my jerk) and, at the time, I didn't know a lot of smart people outside my family. He turned 16 and dropped out of school. Since it was a residential school, I never saw him again (I was 14). That's where my absence piece came from. I wasn't going to write about him--ever. I thought I'd closed the book on him. But my daughter's situation brought back his absence and, guess what? it didn't hurt.

    Well, a lack of internet has given me some catching up to do... I'll post an extra piece a day until I've done so.
