Another Year, Another 30
March 28, 2010 § 16 Comments
Last year, I used Poetic Asides prompts, and made my 30. I hit the wall, rebounded, and fell in love. But the aftermath at the prompt site wasn’t pretty, so I’ll be working from ReadWritePoem. This makes me nervous because their prompts are more complex, and to meet their standards, I must post a poem every day (last year, as long as I hit 30 within the month, it was OK by the rules).
I’m also wondering about writing on a theme – which I did in November – but without having a sense of the prompts, I don’t know how to make that decision. But in case I do, what would be a good theme?
This is not a hypothetical question. And please don’t tell me broken/breaking/recovering hearts, because I wrote 30 of those in November.
BONUS: You can receive a poem a day by email by signing up at Poets.org. It was inspirational. I highly recommend it.
