April Showers bring…

April is full of challenges this year, and if I survive them, I hope to call myself a better writer than I am today. Practice. Practice. Practice is what will happen.

National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWrMo): I already mentioned I signed up for this. Now, I have my theme. The title for the work is Excerpts from the Book of Balder the Bartending Bard. This is an experimental piece written in free-form and prose poetry.

Blogging A-Z Challenge: Signed up for this one, too. As long as I’m posting a poem every day, I might as well join this one that requires a blog post every day. The trick is that the titles/themes of the daily blog post must follow the alphabet. Nothing like making one challenge a bit more challenging with yet another “rule” to follow.

Camp NaNoWrMo (National Novel Writing Month): The way I look at is, since I’m already writing thirty poems as part of an alleged book, I might as well join this challenge, too. By the end of April, I will have enough material to put a chapbook together. Please don’t ask when you’ll see the final project.

Lest I forget: On top of these three challenges, I must complete the draft for my second novel.

April Challenges bring great opportunities to put my skills and dedication to the test. That assumes, of course, that I survive the month.

My next post – 1 April with a subject that starts with the letter A.

Wish me luck,
