I am not sure in what world I thought I would have completed Sunday’s NaPo before this Round Up was scheduled… I will be back in a short while to post Day 7. (I have just finished Day 6. It was a slow burner but I am fully satisfied with the result.)
It is at this Week 1 stage of NaPo that your poems will become more rounded, more instant and you may start to find ones that you want to improve and share.
Congratulations! You have survived a week of writing poems and everything is still okay.
This week I have written poems:
We Only Go There for Meatballs
A Box Within a Box
Me as Lovatar (from pre-NaPo prompt)
Learning – a Villanelle
If Only Melancholy Had a Release Valve
I have discovered new (to me) poets and watched a German rendition of Sonnet 66. I have collected inspiration for the future including:
Working with Sonnet 66 -Shakespeare
Answering Questions/playing with questions
Lots of researching/harvested video footage
If, like me, you are saving poem files daily now might be a good time to copy and paste them into one file. Believe me, you will glad you have at the end of 30 days of writing poems.
I am lucky that I have the time to invest in getting creative. Remember even if you are working full-time and I was the first year, try short form poetry. I am not suggesting it is easier to write, I know it is not but it will take less time as we are leaving the editing process until after the NaPoWriMo experience.
