March Poetry Boot Camp
March 10, 2010 § 2 Comments
Relentless, powerful, exciting, nerve-racking…these past few months have been gale force winds. But waiting for me on the battered shore was the oxygen I’ve been missing the past few years: enjoyable work, new and enriching relationships, travel, and a renewed connection with the arts.
So what’s missing? Time. Time to write, to be calm, to think and consistently create. I’m out of practice. This is not good because April is National Poetry Month, and that means a poem a day.
My creaky writing joints need to move, so I’m creating my own March Poetry Boot Camp. For the next five days, starting tomorrow, I’ll write a poem a day to regain some strength. So come April, when I join ReadWritePoem’s 30 day challenge, I’ll be ready to go.
If you’d like to join me, I encourage you to post your Boot Camp poems under mine. I’ll be posting every evening, before I fall exhausted into bed.
