Greetings! It's been awhile since I've had time I felt I could spare for this blog. I've missed being up on the Red Room news! Life intervenes, however, as I'm sure most everyone understands . . .
Not only blogging, but also the writing of poetry itself has been on hold -- more or less -- for the past few months. To celebrate a mini-milestone (more on which in a future post) and to break back into the habit of writing regularly, I've decided to attempt -- and I do mean attempt -- to write a poem a day for NaPoWriMo (i.e., National Poetry Writing Month). It's April, after all! This is the month for poetry. (Okay, every month is the month for poetry, in my world, but still...)
Because I don't leave my poem drafts up in perpetuity, and because I don't want to turn this blog into a space of chaos (with new posts going up and coming back down daily), I've started a separate blog just for the purpose of this April's project! Come read my drafts and fragments of poetic deadline desperation at my NaPoWriMo blog: may i have a word with you?
I'll be in and out here, too, of course! But it's time for some poetry under pressure! : ) Wish me luck!
