It is that time of year again! NaPoWriMo has whirled it’s way around again and the world’s poets are turning to their laptops/notepads/padded walls for a whole month of scribbling down their thoughts and random rhymes in the hopes of churning out a poem a day for the whole of the month.
Now I know I said I wasn’t going to do Camp NaNoWriMo because I’m busy with studying and working but I’m also aware that I’ve been neglecting this blog a fair bit and that’s not very good. While I have managed to make massive headway with redrafting my novel and my writing is progressing, I’ve not managed to post regularly which was one of my new years resolutions.
[I managed to post every day in January… close enough.]
I’ve also not been drawing which is another new years resolution down the drain and to be honest, it makes me a bit sad that all my creative stuff has had to fall by the wayside in order for me to get other stuff done.
Day One’s prompt this year is to write a lune. A lune is apparently an English form of haiku [sort-of]. It’s three lines and works with a 5-3-5 syllable count. It can stand alone or you can write a series that follow on from one another. If you want to join in with NaPoWriMo you can submit your site here. All you need to do is post a poem a day for April, it doesn’t have to match the prompt, their optional. [As I repeatedly showed when I did NaPoWriMo a couple of years ago. This year I’m going to try and stick to the prompts a little more and experiment.
So for day one of NaPoWriMo! My lune:
Out came the lilac
pretending it’s Spring.
