NaBloPoMo: August 2011

While making my way through my daily poetry reading recently, I noticed that one the bloggers was participating in NaBloPoMo. National Blog Posting Month is sponsored by BlogHer.com, a website which aggregates blogs written by and for women. NaBloPoMo was started in November 2006. Since, it has become so popular that BlogHer hosts a theme for each month of the year. Novembers still receive the most attention and hoopla.

What does this have to do with me and my poetry? I've noticed that I've not been writing or posting as much lately as I'd really like to be doing. I let summer time and vacations get me lazy. Having a goal will help keep me posting and writing daily, so I thought I'd give NaBloPoMo a shot this month. The theme for August is fiction. This doesn't mean all of my poetry has to be fiction, but the prompts provided M-F by BlogHer will be fiction related.

Wish me luck!


  1. Okay, you caught my attention with this one. I've not been writing as much as I'd like too either. Mostly because I'm having a hard time keeping up with everything I seem to have managed to get going all at the same time. (I don't know how that happened.) I think I will follow your lead and try the NaBloPoMo thing too. We shall see what we shall see, huh?

    Thank you!

  2. Best of luck, Kwee! Sometimes we just need a little something extra for motivation.
