I’ll Have To Blog More Frequently
The last time I undertook the National Poetry Writing Month challenge was a couple of years ago and, frankly, it totally wore me out. Thirty poems in thirty days is, um, a lot of work. I’m not a write-on-demand sort of guy. But I have to admit that the effort produced several rough drafts that were worth polishing up and more than just a couple that were subsequently published, so…..
I guess I’ll be writing & posting daily next month. Maybe. Unless I get tired. Or run dry. Or lose interest. Or get too busy. Or. Or. Or….
I think that this time around, though, unless I get really inspired, I’m gonna concentrate on shorter, more formal pieces only. So: you can pretty much expect a fair number of haiku/senryu, tanka, maybe some cinquains or sevenlings, etc. No Limericks, though. I hates me them Limericks. Ick.
I hate writing Limericks, it’s true.
They’re simply too boring to do.
(The rhythm’s too easy;
the tone is too breezy.)
I’ll leave all the Limericks to you.
You can, of course, (as always) feel free to ignore me in April. I hope you won’t, though.
