It's April again, so it's time for the Poem-a-Day Challenge from Robert Brewer at Poetic Asides.
I know this seems off topic, but I really enjoyed participating last year and found that many of my poems were parenting-inspired.
So you also might find that having a daily prompt gives you the structure you need to process what's going on in your life — mamahood included. It was a release for me. One day, I was able to write my son (ten months old at the time!) an apology for being kind of a lame mother. Hmmm...maybe I should reread that one.
Here are the full rules. This year, if you post your daily poems in the comments on Robert Brewer's blog, you can win a completion certificate and possibly be included in an eBook. Snap!
Check in at my writing blog for any updates throughout the month.
