Day 10 – You are Better than You Think!

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 8.43.37 PM10 days! 1/3rd of your NaPoWriMo gone.  Boom,  like that. And what do you have to show for it? If you are like myself and most of my poet friends, some nifty ideas but not a poem you would parade around tossing confetti and proclaiming its perfection. We are our own worse critics.


So what should you do today? Take a long hard look at your previous 9 days, and take 1 line (and only one) from the 5 of those poems you thing are the worse and create something new. Get those 5 lines into a new 15-20 lines. Go for it! There’s beauty in those lines you just need to see them in a different light.
