Here is my writers diary on how #NaNoWriMo week 3 went. How are you doing?
NaNoWriMo Diary – Week 1 (November 2019)
#Nanowrimo Diary week 1
April, I featured poets – what’s next?
April is the month of poetry. But as I was doing Camp NaNo, I decided to feature other poets on my Instagram. I posted asking for volunteers. I was blown away by the number of poets that wanted to take part...
Me being featured!
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.
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 29 – Locomotive
I'm breaking against the prompt and I am going to do my own thing. For inspiration, I am going with the first 'Free Image' I found on Canva. It is a picture of trains. I also want to have a go at writing a Haiku as I've never done one before.
Day 28 – Postcard
For Day 28 the prompt is to write ”a prose poem in the form/style of a postcard."
I'm not confident at writing prose but I'm pleased with what I've created.
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).
