    1. Thank you! (I had to ask my husband to explain to me.. again… what chapbook is. I just can’t seem to fully grasp the concept, no matter how many times it’s explained. LOL)


  1. I love haikus to bits πŸ™‚ I also have to keep reminding myself how they work. They are so conducive to writing for me, I could write endless haikus forever. I write comedy spoof articles and come up with the concept of Haiku News (which is ruddy hard but funny as hell – it works to have links and pics to the original news stories themselves). I constantly count syllables out loud/on my fingers too and load up an online syllable counter for trickier. These will be your best friends throughout the month. You also might want to try looking at lunes too – they have a 5/3/5 syllable structure, instead of the typical 5/7/5. You can also substitute the syllables for words in another variation by Jack Collom, which can be fun writing three line poems based around 3/5/3 words rather than syllables. I did a series of them where I pretended to be film star Danny Dyer πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to see more of your haiku shenanigans Charlene πŸ™‚

    1. This month I’m challenging myself to write 30 5/7/5 style Haiku. I’m definitely going to look farther into the different styles that you mentioned though, either to try to continue to post every day/almost every day past November or to use to participate when NaPoWriMo *actually* happens in April. I used to write pretty much nothing but essay type posts on this blog, back before this blog almost died from neglect. I’ve considered walking away from it several times over the years because I haven’t wanted to write “essays” on here anymore and I felt for some reason like those types of posts were only ones that really “counted as real posts” because that’s how this blog started. I’m realizing now that it’s my blog, and I can reinvent it whenever and however I want.
      …And I’m rambling on about things that are completely unrelated to the very nice poetry advice that you took the time to leave on my blog. Thank you for reading and commenting. I appreciate it. πŸ™‚
