What is NaPoWriMo you may ask?
National Poetry Writing Month… and that month happens to be April, which is this month!
So, over on my other blog I have been busily writing a poem every day – but of course because my blog is about poetry and drawing, I have also been creating a drawing everyday – pastels, wax, digital, charcoal, whatever strikes me at the time.
April is quickly coming to a close, and while it can be difficult to produce a poem and drawing everyday, what will I do without this new routine?
Readers of my poetry blog will know I went though this conundrum when I changed from writing a poem and drawing every day to once a week – which I did after blogging every day for twelve months.
It was during this first twelve months that I participated in my first NaPoWriMo challenge – I was writing every day anyway, so why not participate?
And much to my surprise at the end of the month I was listed in WordPress’s top 5 poetry sites for NaPoWriMo 2013!! An amazing feat considering the number of poetry bloggers out there in the cybersphere!
Anyway, back to the point…. I am participating again this year, after being used to only writing and drawing once a week, so it has been a bit more of a challenge to get the ‘routine’ happening, and no sooner have I perfected it (?) than the challenge is over :-/
For those readers that have not yet checked out my poetry blog, here it is: http://apoemandadrawingaday.wordpress.com/
Or, if you would just like to look at some drawings that accompany the poems here is a small gallery of images… more are on the poetry blog… enjoy 🙂
