Every April and November I take part in the Poem-A-Day Challenge at Writer’s Digest’s Poetic Asides Blog. It’s when I complete the bulk of my poems for the year.
This April, I’m going to do things differently.
First of all, I’ve been so busy that I 1) haven’t had the chance to edit all of my poems from November, and 2) I haven’t been able to submit as much poetry, either. Therefore, I don’t really need to create more of a backlog.
I do have an immediate need to write certain kinds of poems, though. In May I’m taking part in the #TwitterFiction Festival and I need a large stockpile of tweet-sized stories and poems. I figured, hey, I’m going to be getting poetic prompts every day through April. I can use these for a new purpose.
I already have some works written but I’m depending on these April prompts to push me along every day. I’ll post more about the #TwitterFiction event as it nears so that you can follow along!Read More
