    You won't believe it, but we already did 2/3, and only have 1/3 left to go.
    And I also think this is GREAT fun, far more fun than I expected

    Keep it coming, all of you!

    It's been frustrating at times enjoyable most others. Reading others poems, for me at least, has been more beneficial than the ones I've written. Thank you all for helping learn and develop as a poet.

    Trying so hard not to phone it in in the home stretch. Glad I'm doing this, but damn, I might not do it again next year.
    I find that my lack of knowledge can sometimes be an asset in that I'm forced to try new things because I don't have any other options.

    Next year you've forgotten all about that, and you'll have fun again

    Maybe you have, but I haven't
    It was folly for me to try it this year and I now need two a day to complete it. Still, I wrote ten in two days at the end of April '17, and one of them was actually OK.

    Last year I took the 30/poems 30/days as a challenge, and accomplished it, but it really took a lot out of me. Not really interested doing it again, but it's an interesting exercise, and reading some of the poems and the critiques has enhanced my understanding of poetry. I do think, though, that it reminds me of a sprinter trying to run a marathon.

    For me that would feel the same way if I regarded those 30 poems as my best work. So I decided to take it easy... I have 30 drafts after I finished this, and it makes me feel rich. 30 drafts that are hopefully worth editing to masterpieces

    I will admit that despite quantity over quality, many here have produced some darn good poetry.
