Well, the April PAD Challenge has been over for 5 days now, and it’s time to get back into the poetry groove. Just because I haven’t been posting on this blog doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy! Since April 30, the day the challenge officially ended, I have submitted a CNF story to an anthology, entered another essay writing contest, started a 6-week online essay writing class, and submitted 26 haiku and other poems to Kukai, journals, and PAD challenge wrap-ups. I even am a finalist for the third week in a row, in the TriMet Dirty Words Twitter Haiku Contest. There’s still time to vote in the latter. Votes are accepted through 3 p.m. tomorrow afternoon! http://bit.ly/bBpzWg
The Poetic Asides prompt today was to write a poem about why we started writing poetry. Easy enough.
