It’s over. I wrote my poem a day (sometimes two, but sometimes I let a heteronym fill in for me), and they’re all posted here, from the atrocious to the mediocre.
I’ve done this in previous years, but it was never quite the challenge before that it was this time. I changed jobs early in the month, and have been working long hours in my new position. Sometimes it was an hour or two past midnight before I got a chance to write my poem, and I never had much time to spend on any.
Still, I have 30+ new poems to show for it (if I count Rameshi’s, Basil’s, Isem’s and Mary’s). With luck, when I revisit them in a few months, I might decide I have half a dozen worth keeping and revising.
