Next month (April) is National Poetry Writing Month. There’s a yearly challenge to write some poem each day for the entire month. I’d love to see more people jump into the fray. The Poetry@Tech attendance makes me hopeful for an ever-larger participation.
Last year I managed despite having just acquired a mortgage and still being beyond my depth in a thesis. This year I’m scared. I’ve managed another writing-a-day challenge, but I don’t feel the same connection to April.
Or perhaps I feel too much of a connection to everything else that’s going on. I feel like much of my field is in a mess. There’s a mountain of personal work to accomplish at home, physically and emotionally. I feel even more underwater than I did last year.
I’ll try. I haven’t “submitted my site” yet, so I may chicken out. Particularly after having experience with actual chickens. We’ll see.
