Motivation and Forms

Written for:  2023 Get Started Right Writing Challenge - Day 7

"For the final day, spend 30 minutes on your writing goals, either writing, revising, crafting a query letter, reading articles on writing, or whatever activity you can consider; then, share your activities in the comments below. You're free to decide how, but devote 30 minutes of your time today on a writing-related activity."


Reading some poetry every morning provides motivation
for my own writing as well as an appreciation for
a sizable group of varied poets.  I enjoy discovering
different forms, and use new ones when I can.  I pay
particular attention to forms that are unfamiliar,
and those poems which may not seem to use a form, yet
there is something in the layout that appeals to me.
Each April and November, I use a different form for
each of the 30-day challenge.  That in itself is
a challenge for me.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
