    That's why I love NaPo... you write from stream of consciousness and don't have time to procrastinate. It's a great cure for writer's block I am going to do what I can... Surprise yourself!

    Thirty poems in thirty days. It needn't be one a day. Last year one poet finished in about two weeks and another (me) needed ten in the last two days.
    There are no rules about form. Everything is poet's choice. The only rule is that they must be started and finished in the month of April - no modifying of previous work.

    It isn't necessarily about quality, though so much the better if you achieve that. Some of my offerings were dire, but I did go back to a few of them at a later date and improved them. Best of all, I had a great laugh doing it. I needed to resort to micro-poetry to make it to thirty. If you want some terrible examples, mine from last year are linked from this thread.
    If I can get away with that, anything goes .
