My goal is thirty
Ideally one daily
To keep docs away

My goal's 10 for now, but like 10 in the first 10 days. I'll see what happens later. Most of the poems may be centered around social anxiety.
So it goes.

I'm going whole hog
Thirty poems, one each day
How hard can it be?

^ Another sad haiku, also true.
Books are, in my opinion, the worst things ever.

My goal is thirty though that might not be the most realistic goal especially with how busy school is right now (even online).

30 poems is my aim c:

All of it, yo. I will write all the poems.

I'm doing 30 poems and 90 stories, which sounds like a lot, but it's pretty much a Camp Nano and a Napo side by side. I'm aiming for the stories to be flash fiction, so it will be 3 x 600 words.

We're about half-way through the month - how are people's threads going? I'm going to do a quick update / re-work my own goals, feel free to chime in to update how your own writing is going.
Spoiler! :
My goal is 30 poems in 30 days again, and I want to experiment with poetry formatting a lot too. I think I'm going to stick with a little bit of a theme, but less narrow than last year's color-poetry one. Another thing I want to do is revise a few old poems during NaPo. I think I'll have some busy days towards the middle and end of April, and if I decide to move back home it'll get really hectic, but I should still be able to write a poem a day I think.

My other goal is to read all of the NaPo threads - which I was able to do by the end of NaPo last year. And maybe host one poetry workshop - theme to be determined

-> I have 17 poems done, so on track for 30, not super happy with the quality, but they all are poems I suppose. :]
-> On track for reading through the threads pretty much, and have made 35 comments, I'm hoping to keep up commenting through the second half of the month too.
-> Theme/poetic-voice feels super non-cohesive, might try to be more consistently thematic in 2nd half of month.
-> I want to do at least three structured poems, haven't posted any yet.
-> Haven't played around with formatting except like 1 poem, so hopefully have time to do that still. :)
I only respond to Alliyah from now on and I hate dark cyan. dark cyan
