National Poetry Month comes every year

This year I am doing NaPoWriMo: writing {a poem} every day of April.  The last two years I was in graduate school.  I've run out of excuses to not write.  Sometimes, I will take a prompt from this site,; sometimes, from a napowrimo piece or prompt a friend has posted on Facebook. 

At first, I thought I would post a few of the better ones on FB, but I find myself posting every day.  I may feel chagrined to post a mediocre blurb, but posting every day brings me into this community of writers who are writing every day.  And I had been writing every...okay, not every week.  I am inspired, seeing my friends posting their writing every day.  And I am encouraged to take myself less seriously by posting whatever I come up with.  But most importantly, I am writing for 30 days.
