I will not lie. Today’s NaPoWriMo challenge gave me a headache. But, I did learn something. Sappho was one crazy poetic freak of nature. The Muse created her to drive the rest of us insane.
We had to write a Sapphic poem today. It has a strict meter (not iamb, but close enough), and for some reason I was able to understand it but it nearly did me in. I have a new respect for Sappho, and think our Muse is one crazy *mother*. I have a headache now. I hate math.
I am not even going to try and explain it to you. Here’s a link if you want to find out more about it. Let’s just say…good luck. If you’re like me, you’re gonna need it. In fact, it probably wouldn’t hurt to have a shot of scotch/vodka/fave alcohol before you begin.

It’s official. I have met my match with this challenge.
