April Challenges Bring May Recovery

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    You did really well to get both challenges done. I know from last year that A-Z is too much for me, but I LOVED doing the poetry challenge, even if some nights my entry was after midnight, so technically NOT on the right day, but who’s counting?

    I loved so many of yours but Evanesce was really special 🙂 *sigh* I’m sad it’s over.

      Thanks Lizzi. You always got yours in while it was still time over here in the States so that counts.
      And I’m not sure if I’m sad it’s over just yet. But I will miss sharing the day in poetry with you and Rod and Cindy.

  2. I don’t know what else was in April, all I know is AtoZ. I had a blast, but got worn to a frazzle several times. A good twelve hours sleep usually fixes that for me, and I got it last night. It’s always heart warming to make meaningful connections through out blogging.

      The other challenge I was doing is called NaPoWriMo, National Poetry Writing Month, because April is National Poetry Month. I combined the two challenges and it was an emotional ride.
      I will definitely snag the badge and add my link. Thanks for visiting!
