Sorry autistic brain and all that, taken me years to get used to things not going right at work, this is meant to be recreation 😂 so when something Im not expecting happens stress levels go sky high and normal thinking goes out the window, wires have cooled down now


No worries, Collin. We've all been there in some way, so understand.

One quick question.... Do homonyms count as 1 unique word????  Ex.... Lie and lie.... He told me a lie.... He went to lie down..... Will these count as 2 different unique words or do they still count as 1....

Hello fellow poets and NaPo warriors!

I do have a question, perhaps a silly one.. but are we allowed to submit our NaPo poems on the website as well as posting them to the official thread?

Id like to wish everyone the best! Let your pen take flight this month *throws fairy dust on all poets to encourage and motivate them*

If the context is different they will count as two.

And just keep in mind that any word counter program you might use will not understand this.

Yes, we need to stress this.

This thread can not have an EXTREME CONTENT WARNING slapped on it.

So your erotica needs to be very concealed in metaphor or symbolism.

It cannot depict blatant graphic sex.
