Hello, everyone! It’s that time of year again – NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month.
Last year, I challenged myself to writing poetry every day for the month of April and then posting here at the end of every week. While quite difficult, especially with the passing of my 16 year old cat Rosey happening during that time, I felt it was a huge step for me in getting more comfortable in my writing. I not only got comfortable putting my writing out there, but also taught myself that everything I write doesn’t need to be polished and perfect – I just need to write it.
It has actually gotten me in the habit of writing poetry every single day, so to up the stakes for me this year, I decided to post a poem of mine everyday on my Instagram (click here and follow my Instagram to keep up to date with that). Below, I have compiled this past week’s posts, so relax and enjoy my Week 1 of NaPoWriMo 2018!
