NaPoWriMo Wrap Up

January created a meme for NaPoWriMo participants, so I figured I’d fill it out.

Number of poems written in April: 32, counting off-site
Number of poems you’ll keep and revise: I don’t generally revise or develop my haiku, so probably about five.
List the titles of your top three NaPoWriMo poems: Dust on Dreams, Crazy Quilt, Out of the Loop
List your three least favorite NaPoWriMo poems: Pissing Contest, Just Another White Boy, Cheer Up Emo Kid
Favorite line from one of your NaPoWriMo poems: “the canvas/is purple and blue, hope and/the sky”
Favorite poem by a NaPoWriMo participant: Intoxication
What surprised you most about writing a poem a day? How hard it is for me to post something I’m not satisfied with.
Now that you’ve started the momentum, what’s next? Stopping. I mean, something else. Fiction, probably.

Overall, it was an interesting exercise and I’m glad I did it, but I’m not sure if I’ll do it next year. I got some good haiku out of it, and I actually also got a couple of half-finished pieces I didn’t want to put up yet.

  1. Intoxication? Really. Didn’t think you liked the ending (I don’t like it either). But thanks! And congrats on writing 32 poems for April!

    Will you try to publish your poems in journals?

    Hope you post some of your fiction.
