Poeming and Writing Along

I am now 8 days into the two writing challenges I am doing this month. I am happy to announce that I have written 8 poems for the November PAD challenge. I am also glad to report that although I am behind on the suggested word count for NaNoWriMo, I am excited to continue to draft this new novel.

I wanted to explain why I haven't posted any poetry lately because I know when I did the NaPoWriMo in April I posted nearly all my poems. For this month's challenge, though, I am trying something different. A couple months ago I had an idea for a chapbook of poetry and I started working on it, but did not have enough poems to make a chapbook. So my extra challenge to myself is to take every prompt that Robert Lee Brewer posts on his website and to write a poem that not only is based on the prompt but also goes along with the theme of my chapbook. So far I've been able to do that with 7 of the 8 prompts. I just couldn't help myself and had to write a Game of Thrones related poem. :)

I should get back to noveling. I will be sure to keep you updated throughout the month.
