The Twenty Minutes experience is over. Yesterday was the last day for poems from that collection. By now, you may have forgotten how it came about – the idea was to sit down and write – fast -for twenty minutes. No revisions. Just fast fast fast word after word!
Then I went through the poems from each session later and did some revision, but not much. I liked how fresh the poems were. Thoughts just came out that I didn’t know I could think. I loved the process. That’s why I got the idea of the Poetry Marathon, last January (2015), and why I kept on doing it. This Twenty Minute thing was the first step.
More Poetry Marathons are coming. I can’t give up that experience, I decided. But, I’m drifting away from the topic, which is – you may not have realized it, but if you read every poem as they were posted, you read a whole book of them.
Yes, I made them into a book. You know how I like to see my words in print on paper. You can buy it at Amazon, as usual, if you want. I also decided to sponsor a giveaway on Goodreads, if you are interested.
Well, I’ll be seeing you soon here again, I hope, with new words. And, thank you all for your attention to my work, and for going along with this little experience with me. I am grateful.
