NaPoWriMo 2014 starts here

Well today is the start of NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, which is an annual project in which participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April. As I mentioned a couple of blogs ago I’ve decided to give it a go. It could be a bit of a marathon effort and I’ve never been much of a long distance runner but we’ll see how it goes.

My first poem is actually one I’ve been working on for a couple of months now. I’m not sure if that’s completely in the spirit of things but you’ve got to make a start somewhere. It’s called For Micheal.

Subsequent submissions might be a little more scrappy but to help keep me going I’ve made a list of potential subjects & NaPoWriMo also support by providing a daily prompt.

If anyone wants to know more about NaPoWriMo you can follow them on twitter  @napowrimo2014 or visit them on

Alternatively, if anyone has any requests please leave them on a comment. I’d love to hear from you .
