Many of you who have been following my blog for some time know that I participated in the NaPoWriMo 2016 and it was a great experience. Some of the benefits I have described here.
At this moment, particularly in the last couple of weeks I haven’t been satisfied with my writing practice and I think it’s time to stir up things: in the next 31 days, in the coming December I intent to write 31 day long poem. Sounds strange? 🙂 Well, what I actually want to do is to write ONE poem for 31 days. The goal is to add at least three stanzas each day. And why not 30 poems for 30 days as usually challenges go? In this way, I think I will practice more my focus and attention, because as the time progresses I will have to each time read my poem from the beginning in order to continue it. So after couple of days, it will really require to keep up my concentration and follow the thinking pattern.
The second thing is, I want to use this writing experiment as a sort of an emotional tracker, to see how that reflects on my writing every day and are there any fluctuations, especially during holidays.
And the third things is, that this is a kind of ‘gift of writing’ (my birthday falls on 31st December 😉 ) – and use it as an opportunity to challenge myself to improve and observe my writing habits.
Poem post will be updated regularly every day and I will also use #31daypoem hashtag, so it’s easier to follow. If you also want to improve your writing and form a better writing habit, please join me in this fun experiment, share this information and invite friends who you think could really benefit from this exercise. Use the same hashtag so it can be easy to track down.
Once the experiment ends, beside the ’31 day long’ poem as a result, I will share my impressions and how that have impacted my writing in general.
Publishing other regular posts will go as scheduled.
So, how about you, have you participated in any similar writing experiment? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
