Wake up! National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) begins tomorrow!
If you don’t usually write poetry, this is the perfect excuse to try your hand at something new. If that seems too intimidating, allow yourself to write BAD poetry, the poem equivalent of “It was a dark and stormy night….” (Hint: bad poetry is usually WAY more fun to write than good poetry.)
And if you just can’t bring yourself to write poetry of any kind, let NaPoWriMo spur you to work on something else. Think of it as an extension of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month): finish that half-baked novel you started last November (or three Novembers ago) or revise that Frankenstein of a first draft lurking in the bottom drawer.
Whatever you do, write!
P.S. For writing prompts, check out the links to the right or the Writers Write handy-dandy April prompts. The NaPoWriMo site also has links to all sorts of resources, including prompts. The WordxWord 30/30 Poetry Challenge has moved to Facebook: you can sign up here to participate.
