October Poetry Writing Month,  OctPoWriMo,  Poetry

It’s On!


Alright you guys…I did it. I signed up for OctPoWriMo this year. Last year I was simply burned out and going through a mess and just didn’t have the heart or strength to deal with writing anything for 30 days. I still have a mess going but at least it’s manageable. Therefore, a challenge is just what I need to get the ink flowing in my veins again.

If you DO NOT have a private blog you can sign up here:


If you DO have a private blog (Dawn, I’m looking at you. LoL), you can participate by either joining the Poets on the Page Facebook group, or check back here for each day’s prompt.

Make sure to read the basic rules. Also, it used to be stated but isn’t now so just to remind everyone who participates that we should read and comment on at least three other poet’s sites. I think it used to be five but I can’t remember for certain.

Anyway, I am looking forward to another OctPoWriMo and hope you will join in for some great poetry and maybe make a new friend or two!

Have a great Tuesday!

Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Of…. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.

    Ha! I only see this NOW!
    Well, I post on Morgan’s site “A Writer’s Universe”. I’ve managed to write a poem every day, almost always on prompt too. Fancy that!

    I haven’t been able to do the reading much this year. Happy already I get time to write. Life’s been more than crazy! But I’m heading there now… 🙂

      Honestly, you are doing so much better than I have been if you’ve managed to stay caught up. My site crashed three days before and I’ve only just managed to get it back up and running. So no writing for me this year. Sigh. Oh well. I have managed to get some Christmas presents made though. LoL
