That’s 2/3 of the way through NAPOWRIMO and my writers group has been busy. About ten of us swapping poems and prompts.
I also encouraged three other friends to take on the NAPOWrIMO challenge of a poem a day. I feel like a mother hen to use an old expression, clucking over what my friends have taken the time to create. I don’t claim to be a ‘successful’ writer though I write, a lot, both technical things and creative things. But as mentioned in a post earlier in the month, I believe that we all have creative instincts and abilities. We just need to trust in them, and in ourselves. Sometimes we have to dig quite deep. Sometimes we get crap and doggerel. Sometimes, we unearth a sublime gem.
I have been having some fun myself matching poems with images. I am a terrible 2D visual artist but, like many, I do like to take photos and play around with those.
So even though National/Global Poetry writing month is 2/3 done, pick up your pen. And go.
