As it happens, I got as far as I could, and it happened to have exactly 52 unique words!! Very relieved. So, the O (which is a valid spelling) and Y (which isn't) don't matter at all. :)

O! was fine and has been used in sonnets for centuries. But, yeah, the Y, no.

Ah! Well, we have 51 valid words then, and one pseudo-word, for tonight only. Hopefully said poem will amuse.

Greetings, Great NaPoets of 2024! We are TWO days away from the final leg of this journey! You're written admirably! You've written bravely! You've pushed through fear, doubt, and uncertainty. You've braved the desert and its sandworms! Don't give up now!

I'm having so much fun!

I thought that by now, I'd have fallen back into my normal styles of (a) introspective, stripped back free verse and (b) rhyming silliness or rants. Instead, I've written ONE 'normal' poem for the challenge so far, and for all the others have tried out new techniques, alphabets, codes and puzzles. Not exactly making life easy for myself, am I?

The sand worms got me today, I was really struggling and the weekend now seems quite daunting as I know I will have even less time, however that said we must use the down hill slope to gather some momentum. Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more. Only 11 to go does sound do-able.

If you feel you can't get a connection then reach out to me or a team member and request an absence. Per the guidelines you can request up to two days for such cases as no internet or traveling and no sandworm will strike you.
