Update on the
100 Poem Project!


:new:69 POEMS! Getting there...

To those who are new: this is the journal recording my progress on my 100 Poem Project! In 2011, after completing NaPoWriMo, I had seen a number of people doing things like this and thought I'd give it a try. It has actually been VERY helpful - it's been a good challenge for me to try to fit every one of my poems to a topic. Though I haven't always managed it, having a theme to focus around has really helped me direct the flow of the imagery or sentiments. I'd say that so far, it's been quite a success. This list of topics is open to anyone who would like to attempt it (though I'd appreciate at least linking back to the original list so people know where you got it ;) )!

Original text: SO! After successfully completing NaPoWriMo, and still feeling rather poem-y, I've decided to try one of those poetry challenges, where you start with a list of topics and slowly write a poem about each and every one. I thought it would be kinda fun and a good way to keep those creative juices flowing :) I've created a blog for this exact purpose, especially because I will not be posting all of my poems here on DA: 100-poem-project.blogspot.com/. Enjoy!

I posted a journal about it asking for suggestions for themes, if you'd like to suggest a few. I bet you'd have really interesting ideas. ;)

You inspired this one with your comment: James Taylor. (;

Get some more of NC in there, too--Highlands, Southport, Asheville and Biltmore Estate (maybe get some of that crazy Vanderbilt family history in there). Capitalize on your homesickness!

My go-to for random inspiration is particle physics. Look around in there--the language they use to describe things is so strangely human and neat. Same with other branches of physics--quantum is another favorite.

Okay, enough of my dorky rambling now. (: Good luck with this!
