Guess who just improved from being a couch potato complaining about her life to couch potato complaining about her life through poetry?
As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve been pretty absent on my blog lately. That’s because I’m writing for National Poetry Writing Month this year. I’ve never written poems before in my entire life, but I’ve always wanted to. So I decided to use NaPoWriMo to get those poetic juices flowing.
But juggling a full time job, a blog, my obsessive need to watch at least one season of a TV show every weekend, and poetry has been a little difficult. Which is why I’ve been slacking off on the blogging front a little too much lately.
But, don’t worry! I’ll get back to more reviews and satirical posts once April ends!
Until then, here are some poems I wrote for NaPoWriMo.
Fair warning: I love free verse (as evident from my absolute fangirling over Bukowski in several of my posts). If you don’t like free verse, you probably won’t think the following even classify as poems.
3. 9 to 5
I don’t know if any of these are good, but I sure like writing them. If you want to read more of my NaPoWriMo entries, check out my Instagram.
