Hi everyone! Tomorrow starts the first of April which means national poetry month. Basically each day you write a poem in the month of April. There are plenty sites giving prompts for each day. My library again is going to be doing a prompt every day and read a poem too.
Unfortunately no one wrote a poem from my prompt so there will not be one posted tomorrow. The April prompt for this month will be either pick one of the sites that will be hosting national poetry prompts and pick one. Then comment here or to one of the many April poem posts. Or the other is to go through my Month of April: 30 Days Challenge category and write a poem based on that prompt and post it here or to that post. Then end of April I will choose a poem or two and display it on the site.
Here are some sites that will have prompts to write a poem a day from:
Read+Write: 30 Days of Poetry (My Library)
Writers Digest Poetic Asides
National Poetry Month
Today is the 6th year since this poetry blog got started! Since then I have self-published a total of nine poetry books. More will be on the way. I was thinking about putting together a fun collection of dog poems based in double elevenie form. I have already started them if you have been reading them. Another idea for poetry book I was thinking was letter poems. Letter poems are like letters but done in more of a poetic way. Two examples are the Moon And Sun Letter and Love Letter To My Dog. I am in current work of a possible how to write poetry book with prompts and sample of my poems. I am also considering on adding another category section for giving you guys a chance to write a poem based on a prompt I post once a month. Then pick one of poems and feature it on my blog. If you think it is a good idea let me know. You can either comment here or to the suggestion and ideas page. I look forward to posting more poetry to everyone who is following my blog and future followers!

As of October 31, 2017, Createspace has redone how they do the Createspace eStore. The eStore is going away and URL are redirecting to Amazon. Below is the CreateSpace URL in case you use CreateSpace. They have also removed the promo coupons codes you can create. So, for future books I will link just the Amazon one.
