NaPoWriMo (or, April is the prolific-est month…)

Filed under: Uncategorized — by evie9 @ 8:48 pm

Greetings!  Thanks to Robin Reagler, I’m going to start down this garden path, but I have little hope of getting to that gorgeous rosebed of 30 poems by April 30th.  : )

Still . . .   I am celebrating a little mini-milestone of sorts, and this is my reward.  So while what goes up on this blog may be more appropriate for NaHaiWriMo (which is to signify the potentially tiny size of the drafts and fragments that will appear here), it will be my pleasure.  Won’t you join me?

I’ll be leaving each day’s draft up only until I post the next one — no permanent archive of drafty poems to float around the web!  So check back often — and do leave a word of encouragement.

Today’s poem is yet to come…



  1. I’m so happy to be doing this *with* you again!

    • Hi Evie, I’m your Japanese Brummie (the term for a person from Birmingham) cheerleader for the month. I wish I understood poetry! I’m waving the ‘Evie’ flags as always and wish you the best for this wonderfu NaPoWriMo.

  5. Robin also got me going–but aren’t you smart to take down the drafts each day?

    Still grateful for the ride to PA and our door-to-dooring for the man.
