Oh, me, oh, my! How did I forget that this is the first day of the 2011 PAD Challenge?
Who's with me?
The object of the game is to write a poem each day in the month of April. Robert Lee Brewer at Poetic Asides will provide a daily prompt to put you in the mood.
And I'm not even bitter that none of my poems won any recognition last year. No, not a bit. Ok, a bit.
But, the good news is, I used last year's PAD Challenge to fill out my goal of writing more parenting poetry.
And I was able to collect those poems, and more from my journey as a parent so far, into a book of parenting poetry: Poetry of a Hobo Mama: The First Three Years.
Which makes me very, very happy I participated last year.
This year, my goal is to concentrate on chronicling some of the thoughts and emotions I've had during this pregnancy so far. Yep, working on that next book of parenting poetry! Even if I work on it only once a year…
