DUPeeps, welcome to the Official DUP NaPo/GloPoWriMo 2019
from your CoHosts, Ahavati & JohnnyBlaze!
Sign-up has begun and registration for this epic challenge will run the entire month of March.
Last year we had 18 survivors limping cross the April 30th finish line! https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/images/uploads/forum_post/424609.jpg
How many will we have this year?! You must register by no later than midnight ( your time zone ), March 31st with a post declaring, " I'm in! " in THIS thread.
You must also declare your Location and Time Zone.
For example : " I'm in! North Carolina, EST "
You have one month to prepare and here is how to best accomplish this:
Jot down ideas into your Drafts or on separate pages of a notebook. It can be a couple words, a few lines or even a handful of stanzas - it doesn't matter. The point is, you spill an idea out onto a page in one sitting. Whatever ends up on the page in that session, you then LEAVE IT ALONE until April 1st.
Hopefully when the competition kicks off, you will have plenty of raw ideas ready to be sculpted into rough drafts and then revised into polished works of art.
The spirit of NaPo is to write, write, and write, producing a body of work you wouldn't normally have. It teaches you, through discipline and commitment, that you have the ability to make writing a priority despite what's going on around you.
You will be required to post 1 poem per day throughout the 30 days of April.
However, things are going to happen! Family emergencies, internet outages, previous engagements, etc ..... We understand that you may not be able to focus on writing or even access DUP on a day here and there for a multitude of "legitimate reasons".
This is where you can take the initiative by completing poems ahead of schedule rather than scrambling to complete and post more than one in a day when you finally do have the opportunity.
We also wish to introduce our Official DUP NaPo/GloProWriMo Team Members! Jade-Pandora
is tasked with taking notes on whoever edits their entries after the 24 hour grace period alotted, for which they will be penalized and risk forfeiture of the Trophy. yelluw_always
will be checking each entry to ensure that it meets the 50 unique word minimum. Summerrain75
will be monitoring the consecutive poem number count. Amorous_Tryst
will be ensuring each participant submits one poem per day in their time zone ( unless excused by us ).
Do NOT contact these Team Members for any reason whatsoever regarding this competition. They will be busy enough as it is with their writing for the challenge and handling their assigned tasks.
Any questions, suggestions, or comments? Post'em here!
And if you feel you must contact Ahavati and JohnnyBlaze with a concern, you may do so through Private Message.
