It’s NaPoWriMo Time (Almost)!

We’re under the two-week window for National Poetry Month, which means National Poetry Writing Month, or NaPoWriMo, is coming up fast. Are you planning to write a poem a day? Are you ready to flex your poetry muscles? Whether you’re keeping pace in a writing group or going solo, let us know your April plans.

Personally, I will be writing a poem a day. Yikes!

Ok...if it is going to force me to write daily...I'm all for it.

No guarantee of the quality however but let's hope for a gem or two amongst the coal.

I say go for it. At the end you'll have 30 mostly bad poems, but a few that you might revise.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Hmm. I'm planning to start the next round of Novel in 90 on the 1st of April, but I suppose a month of haiku or something wouldn't kill me... XD Is there a central page for NaPoWriMo or do I just go for it?

January said...

Good question, J. I'll look around and see who's hosting a page.

Glad you're participating while writing a novel. Cool.

Oh, man oh man. I did it last year and it was tough. I said then, not this year...but...

oh yes! i'm doing it. of course, there will be the days when it is harder than getting a two-year-old to stop a tantrum, but i will persevere...i'm actually kind of looking forward to it.

Goodnight, Mom said...

Please don't make me write poetry...

I'll be working on my novel, but I'm going to participate in National Poetry Month by reading a poem every day and sharing it with someone--either by posting it on my door at work, or emailing one to a friend, or sending them via (gasp) snail mail!

Looking forward to it!

January said...

That's a great way to share poetry, Erin. Hmmmm. Maybe I'll send out poems in e-mail for NPM.

Kristi, you're on the hook. At the very least, maybe you'll support a literary event in your neighborhood.

Yay Jilly!

J, looks like Read Write Poem will do something for National Poetry Month--Deb and I are putting something together.

Ananda, it is a great way to finish a collection--that's what I did last year, and I'll work on another collection in April.

I'll be writing and posting haiga every day. I was looking for a button but didn't find what I wanted. I wonder if you've found any?
