Goals:

Not sure what the vibe is going to be this year but I want it to be more Authentic™ to myself and more experimental. I have some ideas from a recent literature convention I attended, so I may draw from those. I'd like to maybe try my hand at narrative poetry and different voices, perhaps some structured stuff. I'm also taking a poetry class right now so hopefully some things will come out of that. My goal, first and foremost, is to not stress myself out about this. In the past I've pressured myself to reach 30, which was just too much for me, and often left me with half-developed, rushed poetry. So this time, I'm going to join up with @BlueAfrica with a 4 poem goal, one per week, and if I write more, great! Comments are welcome, and I love you all. <3

Thanks @BlueAfrica! <3 I've got some stuff! Once I started writing, I got a lot of ideas, though many aren't fully fleshed out.

<333 thanks buddy! It's very experimental, but I liked writing how I speak and I want to keep it in mind for other narrative pieces. :)

We're in week 3! I know it's not Friday yet, but are you on the road to a third poem?

Yes!! And I'm very excited about it. I've actually set tomorrow morning aside solely for writing. :) Hopefully my next will be up soon! What about you?

I have so many different ideas for poetry and a few lines hashed out, but we'll see what happens. I mostly want to get one done about my grandfather and then my self-challenge to write or revise one about sex, but I'll probably take whatever poetry occurs to me.

Last poem! My attempt at a sonnet. If I had more time, I would play with it more. Maybe I'll come back to it later. :)
