DUPeeps, welcome to the Fourth Official DUP NaPo/GloPoWriMo 2020 Registration 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 25 survivors limping cross the April 30th finish line, the largest NaPo in Du's History!

https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/poetry-writing-month/

How many will we have this year?! Let's find out!

1. You must register by no later than midnight ( your time zone ), March 31st with a post declaring, " I'm in! . . ." in THIS thread.

2. You must also declare your Location and Time Zone for our Time Keepers!

For example : " I'm in! North Carolina, EST "

3. You have one month to familiarize yourself with the challenge guidelines in the NaPo Q & A thread here:

https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/forum/poetry/read/10790/

4. You have one month to prepare for the challenge, 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.

I write epics each year; therefore, once the idea comes to me ( which is often at the midnight hour ) I begin drafting an outline.

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";  therefore, you can be granted an excused absence by notifying Johnny or me.  We'll let the respective Team Member who is monitoring daily posts know so that they won't report you didn't post.  Makeup post instructions will be discussed in the official comp thread April 01st.  

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 will also be introducing our DUP NaPo/GloProWriMo Team Members and their responsibilities throughout registration in this thread daily!

You can recognize many of them by their Team NaPo 2020 Avatars!

Any questions, suggestions, or comments? Post'em here!

In the interim, enjoy previews of coming attractions to a galaxy somewhere near you!
