  • Meant to hop on the NaPo jam this weekend but then I kind of forgot whoops. Anyway, declaring my #NaPoGoals

    -30 poems, ideally one every day.
    -would like to do at least one structured poem
    -would also like to revisit submitting some of my older pieces to journals (did a batch, got rejected, willing to try again but I think the pieces themselves need more work than I realized).

    Also posted one of my old-people-angst poems to the publishing center because why not. in the mirror i saw my life’s erosion

  • I have never simultaneously loved and hated a song so much https://open.spotify.com/track/3Ea8cCWH ... dkeH--ZpFQ

  • New best way to start a therapy appointment: “I was watching You last night”. Quickly had to clarify I was talking about the TV show (though for all I know Joe Goldberg is stalking my therapist :P)

  • Just saw the most ridiculous exchange on the Taylor Swift subreddit. In the general thread, someone mused that it would be really cute if a certain song from her first album was used in the third season of “The Summer I Turned Pretty”. Now I have never read this book or watched this show so I literally don’t care about this, but someone got upset and asked them to delete this “massive [expletive] spoiler”…op replied saying the books have been out for 13 years so she doesn’t feel bad and the commenter said the “whole crux of the show was ruined” because I guess this was a love triangle and knowing who the MC chooses ruins the whole thing. OP basically said what I was thinking…like there’s still a lot that happens to get to that end point. The show isn’t ruined. The commenter said “ It actually is a secret. The whole point of the show is who should she be with/choose. And now that’s been spoiled by you… Next time you get spoiled for anything that’s been out for a while, I hope you’ll remember this exchange and that you don’t have any right to be upset.” Imagine having so few problems that you get this worked up about a TV show “spoiler” lmao

    Normally im pretty chill about “spoilers” because like even if you know what’s coming, the journey to get there should be interesting enough to keep you watching/reading anyway. Except right now there is a certain show im trying to avoid spoilers for, but at least it’s not based on a book and I should be able to binge it this weekend so I can relax haha.

  • Just got a spam email on my work account that really went for the jugular. “When your bills are paid but your body is spent”. Might make a good napo thread title lol

    Omni since when are spam emails so accurate?

  • I know I haven’t been on in a minute but just had to share this…I went by Nicki as a kid. I am literally an American girl doll. I mean, I can’t skateboard to save my life, but I was more tomboy-ish and absolutely did own animal print everything at one point. Time to go join AARP I guess. Dear god.

  • Well I finally wrote that "Grand Canyon across my forehead" poem, and once again, I feel like I've failed to do it justice, but it's fine.

    LMS VI: a billion seconds gone, but where?

  • Just wanted to say it makes me so happy getting the YWS account updated emails again! Even though I check in almost every day anyway despite being less active than I used to be.

  • Spoiler! :
    uh yeah I definitely needed to drink some wine to actually write this one. might delete later lol. It's just such a weird and hard topic to talk or write about, especially on the YOUNG writer's society whoops. but like this is where my head is at right now so yeah. LMS VI: a billion seconds gone, but where?
