We are in the final throes of March which means April will be dawning on us soon and with that comes my most and least favourite time of the year – National Poetry Reading Month, or NaPoReMo for short. This includes the NaPoReMo challenge of 30 poems in 30 days. One per day. Now as trivial as that might seem, I’ve tried for the last five years and it is probably the most difficult thing I’ve attempted as a writer… well, apart from trying to write a Pantoum.
I’ll be posting each of the prompts I use and the resulting poem here and on tumblr for all to see and maybe have a go at yourself. Let’s see if I can, for the first time ever, make it through to the 30th day.
Let me know if any of you are attempting this as well as it would be wonderful to share in the creation of new poems and in the frustration that comes from not being able to actually concoct anything at certain points.
Hoping you are all having a wonderful Easter too!
