It’s officially NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month…but I’m not participating, as I have no desire to write a novel this year.

Instead, I’m going rogue and doing my own thang with my poetry club. We call it NoPoeMo, or November Poetry Month. We’ve accepted the challenge to write one poem a day, each day during the month of November. The poems don’t have to be good, and we’re not allowed to edit them during the month of November. At the end of the month, I should have 30 rough drafts of poems, which sounds pretty flippin’ sweet to me.

What creative pursuits have you been pursuing lately?


  1. I'm kind of bored with my wardrobe and still figuring out dressing for my job, so I think I'm going to start blogging my outfits again. The only problem is finding a way to take pictures. Now that I'm not doing regular fittings there isn't a room with big mirrors at work. I'm also trying to learn crochet, but I'm getting bored by that already.

  2. Bored by crochet? Hmmm…yeah, I bet it can be a lot less compelling than knitting, but I don't really have any knitting expertise, so I can't say for sure.
