52 Pick - up

Recently I participated in NaPo. I found that forcing myself to write so quickly freed me in many respects from worrying about the audience. You know those pesky birds that seem to perch on your shoulder like the devil and block you from writing.

In keeping with that experience, I intend to continue to write often by writing and posting at least one poem a week. 52 weeks, 52 poems! I will be removing the poems as I sub them as editors are getting very persnickety: if they google and find your poem, they may not publish it.

Nic, Julie and Scavella are up to no good with a different kind of writing twisty. Write 1000 lines in IP!

Congratulations and welcome to the world of blogging. I just heard a story on National Public Radio which claimed that the average age of bloggers is 24; all I can say is, "Hmmm . . . ."

I like your idea of one poem a week. I'm thinking about it. *thinking thinking, thinking . . .*

Thanks Hedgie. 24! hrmm is right.
And poem a week is WAY more doable than one a day.

Of course misery loves company. The alternative was 1000 lines of IP. Since I would prefer to eat glass than write 1000 lines of IP, this seems less torture.

maybe... heh
