I watched as NaPoWriMo came and went, and enjoyed some poetry. And tolerated some, hey we all try and some people like our stuff and some people don’t and that’s why we’re all here, just to see if we can write something that people think is good. I say, keep trying and if anyone criticizes what you do without offering constructive tips (and without bragging about how good their own shit is, please I don’t want to hear about yours because I need help with mine!), tell them to shut the fuck up. I’m going to read and enjoy, or read and dislike, but I’m keeping my mouth shut unless I really like something. And that’s if I notice it because these emails come pretty fast, and I’m a baby blogger.
I probably can’t write a poem every day, especially not a good one. But I really like reading poetry, even if I judge it not to my taste. I really like writing poetry too and I’d like a writing suggestion. I know F is for Free Verse and H is for Haiku, S for Sonnet, etc. I would like someone to list poetry forms in alphabetical order, from A to Z, with at least one poetry form for each letter. I found a great poetry website that has almost reached that goal, skipping J and K, U, W, X, Y and Z. Sadly, although the website offers 55 perfectly good poetry forms, they are missing letters from my OCD sequential NEED for complete completion.
I don’t even think I can write a good blog every day, much less a poem. But I’ll try, skip a day now and then. I’ll write something if I can get inspired or have a whim.
I watched as the Alphabet challenge came and went, and didn’t even have a clue where to start or end, so I didn’t do that one either. Are there blogging challenges for every month? Where would I go to find those?
Please comment with suggestions.
And now the random oddity of the day (hey there’s an idea for a blogging challenge!) : Ever heard of earworm? For some reason “The [fucking] CHICKEN DANCE” is in my head and I can’t get it out.
