NaPoWriMo Index 2017

NaPoWriMo is National Poetry Writing Month. It occurs every year. I missed 2017, because work was so busy.

I do not consider myself a writer, I have always been a poet, so … it is a year late, but perhaps it will be at least entertaining.

The basic activity is to write a verse every day in April. The type of verse as well as the subject/topic is revealed by the activity group, NaPoWriMo, on their website.

I will list the dates, [type of verse], SUBJECT (if applicable) and the title below. As I complete each said verse, I will provide the link here as well as with each posted through Twitter.

I have made a calendar listing the topics/ styles:
10 pieces in progress
2 given up on; prompt too vague
The remainder are blank ATM
