    April is National Poetry Month - Write a poem a day!

    I had some great intentions to join in with many other poets (and wannabe poets like me) to write a poem a day throughout the entire month of April 2010. So far, I have made it to day 7 - that was a couple of days ago. I guess the point is to enjoy the process and just the outcome, eh? You can take a stab at either one if you want. Just click on the blog link to the writers digest or read the guidelines below...

    Main Objective: Write some new poems during the month of April. I provide the prompts (and my own poetic attempt); you write the poems.

    April 1-30: Beginning at some reasonable time on the morning of April 1, I will provide a prompt. I will repeat this around the same reasonable time (usually between 8-11 a.m. Ohio-Georgia time) throughout the month.

    Poets should write a poem each day of April.
    Following the daily prompt is optional.
    Posting poems on the Poetic Asides site in the Comments section is optional.
    Participation is free.
    No registration is required.

  • I will not be able to delete poems once they are added to the Comments section.
