It’s the second day of National Poetry Month. Have you fallen in love with poetry yet?

Well I fell in love with poetry a long time ago. And what’s best about it is that it’s also a love I find again and again. We all have become a fan of someone because something they created had ensnared us.

Today’s poet was one I found by happenstance thanks to Button Poetry. And the poem that ensnared me, making me a fan…here it is.

Are you a fan yet? What are you doing to celebrate National Poetry Month? Who’s your favorite poet? Why?

It’s April 1st and you know what that means. And no I’m not talking about April Fool’s Day which also happens to be Fred and George Weasley’s birthday. But it’s the first day of National Poetry Month!

Now usually I have something planned to celebrate. But this year I have nothing planned. I have too much going on at the moment. I’m doing the 85K90 writing challenge and using April as a catch up month to write the ~35K word count needed to make goal. Then there’s also NaPoWriMo, writing 30 poems in 30 days challenge too.

I thought whether I should go ahead and still post something everyday for April. Like reblogging my favorite and past poetry month blog posts. Reblog poetry posts from other websites. Or continue my blogging schedule, posting once a week every Monday. Anyhow, we’ll see how things goes.

Anyways, to start this month off right, I’m sharing the poem that made me an instant fan of Elizabeth Acevedo.

 

Elizabeth Acevedo has a new book out, published last month on March 6, 2018, “The Poet X.” Click on the image below to find it on Amazon.

85K90 Month Three Update

85k-facebook2018-share-1200x630-768x403

It’s the final writing month part of 85K90. I’m no good with Math, but I tried to calculate the words written by month.  And find out exactly the total words I’d have to commit to complete the challenge.

First I came up with a total of 39,176 words written from January to February. But my project tracker on 85K90 states my word count is at 42,227. If so, then the word count up to March 23 should be 48,244.

Now let’s see what, if any, progress I made in March.:

Foreseen Bonus Character Interview

She asked for it and against my better judgement Keisha Anders is getting her own story. And who’s the man of the hour, the hero, her amour? Alejandro Vaga.
