Sadly I have been very neglectful of this blog of mine. When I launched it last year it was around about the time of Na/IntPoWriMo 2013, and I remember I had years worth of poetry that had never been read by anyone let alone published for all to see. Within that collection are still some of the best poems I’ve ever written. But poetry is something that comes from deep within the auspices of my creative regions, so it tends to flow out of me quite unbidden. The least amount of editing I can do the better. So this is what I’m going to do for the next 30 days, participate in National Poetry Writing Month and just let it happen, and see what happens. However, as I am not a US citizen, technically for me it will be an international affair. So just to restore the balance, and to show my disapproval of the lack of this year’s acknowledgement of international WordPress users wishing to contribute their poetic greatness, I shall be renaming this little endeavour Maria’s Poetry Writing Month, or MPoWriMo.
Apart from the slight glitch in WP etiquette, I shall remain the optimist that I am as I love to write, almost as much as I love to breathe, so I think we’ll be all right. I hope you pop in for a visit, and enjoy the ride.
