Wow! Thank you A & JB for everything you've done.
Love the banner, and glad it got my double eye in there
You're both very welcome!
For any of those watching/ reading with some inclination to join in next year, please do. The experience is invaluable and bar any personal challenges (such as writing only villanelles) the competition is not as stressful or as bad as it may look from the outside. The event handily comes with two very helpful and supportive hosts, in the form of Johnny and Ahavati, and other entrants tend to band together to form a community if you need any pointers or plain old reassurance.
So if you thought you might have a go next year but have some reasons not to, I would highly recommend joining in and conquering those fears.
Thank you, Viddax. We appreciate that. Until someone experiences NaPo - they honestly won't realize what they're capable of.
I was having second thoughts in joining but through Ahavati I was able to make up my mind and joined despite the uncertainty I felt. If time permits me to stay longer here I would still join the NaPo.
I'm so happy you joined us, Summer. You did amazing.
What an absolutely epic video - parabens em extremo.
"Josh - wonderful offering - I'll be commenting on your personal page. As an aside, I am so happy that our email prompted your return to DUP and NaPo participation this year. You had been truly missed."
Well thank you so much for pulling me out of Brexit Blues and giving me a many more times positive focus. My poetry writing had ground to a halt too. I am am deeply in your debt. Josh xxx :)))
Thanks, Josh. It could've been so much better but I didn't get the idea until 3/4th the way through. I really didn't have time to do what I would've liked to. Ah, but next year!
We're happy you're back - and that's the best testament to the power of NaPo anyone could give right there!
