Today, I am writing about one of my posts being featured on someone elses blog. It is the first time one of my articles has been shared. I was flattered, honoured and it felt like a mini achievement.
Reflecting on NaPoWriMo
The challenge is over and I did it. It's time to reflect on how it went.
Day 30 – Paint
Many creatives get told to get a ’real’ job, one that can pay the bills. When I saw Claude Monet’s dad wanted him to be a Grocer, I could hear him arguing with his son in my head.
Day 27 – Tarot
A few years ago a work colleague gifted me a pack of Tarot cards and gave me a blue cloth to keep them safe. For this challenge, I decided to dig them out and use them as inspiration for today’s poem.
Day 26 – Senses
Sadly, I am making this entry a day late. I decided to write about mental health as I think it is tricky concept for those that have not experienced it to understand. When I was struggling with issues myself, I really got into poetry and I felt it was a way I could express myself more easily.
Day 25 – Warning
Oh, this prompt sounds like fun. My hubby knows that I can be mean if I'm tired, hungry or have a headache. I also love vinegar and I'm very passionate about real food and don't like impersonators (margarine, quorn and chocolate bars that are really biscuits).
Day 24 – Elegy
With Earth Day recently taking place, my impact on the planet is at the forefront of my mind. The images of our seas plastic pollution is very disturbing and that is where I drew my inspiration for today's poem.
Day 23 – Avicii
I've always loved Avicii's music and I was sad to hear he had passed this weekend. I hoped the news was a hoax but it is wasn't. Today's poem is using the lyrics from one of his songs.
Day 21 – Unrequited
I think Echo’s story is one many have experienced. I'd bet everyone has wanted someone who doesn't know they exist and dismisses them without realising the hurt caused. If you've not experienced that - lucky you.
Day 20 – Rebel
Today's poem is about how we all are unique and we shouldn’t let anyone tell us who we are based on a box we are put in. Nobody should be compared to someone else. Especially not at the expense of their confidence.
