Here’s a good NaPoWriMo tip – if you have both poeming and weed-pulling on your to-do list for the day – do the poeming first! Don’t be like me; Sunday I did the weed-pulling first.

Looking at the day’s schedule and finding those times available for focused writing. It’s Monday – which for most people means jump-starting their week. And a great day to jumpstart your writing month! Cultivate your habits early & they help you slide into the finish.

it worries the skin,
the days accumulation
enough to avoid this
but as you try
that sharp edge
