I have been loving standing at the peripheries of America’s Poetry Month. I’m glad I didn’t commit to any goals/challenges, because I’ve been able to focus on my own writing (that troublesome verse novel) whilst being inspired and invigorated by all the chatter and love for poetry!
And the really wonderful thing is, that verse novel is gradually making sense, and finding it’s own rhythm again. So that I’m now sucked right back into it, and enjoying the process. Whereas there has previously been a lot of procrastination and avoidance.
Within an hour of this tweet, I had clarity on the next poem, and written another completely new poem. So America, you can celebrate Poetry Month EVERY month, and I’ll be cheering! 🙂
<- Also this week I posted a student’s study guide for ‘Bully on the Bus’, generously prepared and shared by Yr 4 class teacher, Glenys Rathjen.
Unrelated Tip: For a number of weeks now, I’ve noticed others in the Poetry Friday crew ‘liking’ comments I’ve made, and I’ve wished I could do that, too. And now I can! If you, like me, have been wanting a ‘Like’ button on your blog comments, simple instructions (for WordPress users) are here.
And that’s all from me this week! Enjoy the Poetry Friday buzz from many who are partaking in the Poetry Month of March. (Perhaps you are?) You can read all the inspiring posts collated by Laura at Writing the World for Kids .
