Hey,
Is there any way to upload rather than compose on line? T.

Can you compose in Microsoft Word or any sort of Notepad?

Then just copy / paste to DUP.

I think I just fainted! Definitely regrouping here, keeping work and my own writing in mind.

Hopefully everyone will understands if we's gets a bit distracted from time to times.

AND. . .with that, If I do not already have it, I am requesting all participants to email their email address to poeticmedics@gmail.com so that I can add you to this year's NaPo folder! You will NOT be spammed with anything; however, I may be contacting you regarding featuring one of your poems on a graphic throughout the competition, particularly the new entrants.  

Thank you!

What a lovely thread.  I知 nervous as hell now, with the date looming so close, but I致e cleared the schedule of distractions and deleted FB so I can focus.  I知 looking really forward to breaking out of my comfort zone to participate.  I generally only write as my muse dictates so this will be a real challenge for me.  I dig it.

What a GREAT way to prepare!

The thing is, you're stepping out on faith and poetry won't let you down.  It will challenge you to re-evaluate your definition of it as having to be perfect.  Just as a painting, it needs to evolve from its gessoed base stage to become what it will become over time.

When this is over, you will be proud of yourself; you will have poems you never imagined, and you will have poems that need future editing.  The point being, you chose the red pill, ergo, will have 30 poems in 30 days!

i am very anxious and maybe it's because i haven't been writing (bits and pieces in my journal) and i have no muses to spur and or ignite my "Git-Up-and-Go"

i
WILL finish one a day for thirty but most of it will be crap i suspect.

i have jotted down 24 prompts for me (may not use them all .....)

So just wanted to share with all You 1st Timers --
no matter how many times we do this
every single one of us (with the exception for JB and Viddax) often have the jitters and not certain if we can do this again.

Oh, this year I'm kinda nervous. Usually I just wing it, but this year I'm entertaining the idea of an epic poem and all I have is the title so far . . .
