It’s time again for the Annual Writer’s Digest Poem-A-Day (PAD) Chapbook Challenge hosted by Robert Lee Brewer on the Poetic Asides blog at http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/poetic-asides. Last year I completed the poeming part, but took waaaaaay too long in figuring out which poems I wanted to include in the chapbook, letting the deadline for submission pass me by. Hopefully, this year, I’ll get the poems and the chapbook completed and submitted.
I’ve mentioned before [in previous posts] that I find myself to be more creative when I focus my energies on creating ‘formed’ poems. For instance, the summary of my poems from this years PAD challenge back in April yielded the following stats:
tanka: 5 (+2)
unformed/free verse: 4
It will be interesting to see how the stats for the two PAD challenges in 2012 compare. Game on! Time to get poeming…
