Welcome to my little poetry space. I’ve been participating (or attempting to participate) in NaPoWriMo since 2013. I’m a reader who loves to write and a dancer who loves working with kids. I’ve been writing poetry for as long as I can remember, and stories for about half that time. I love dancing almost as much as I love reading and writing, and some day I’d like to write a children’s book about dancing.
I’m currently in school to be a child development therapist, and working as a nanny for the cutest little boy ever! I’m also currently obsessed with fish, and have 5 aquariums with various little oddballs and cuties (Cory Catfish and freshwater Puffers are my jam). Also on a side note, but very important, purple is the best!
I hadn’t done much with this blog until I re-purposed it for NaPoWriMo. 2013 was the first year I participated in NaPo, and I tried to write all my poems with the common theme of “Fine Things”, which is a poem I wrote a while ago with the idea that “the finest things in life are meek, lowly, and unplanned.” I made it my goal that April to notice at least one small blessing or act of kindness every day. That following April (2014) had a theme of celebration, since the previous winter was so long and cold. It was such a relief that Spring had finally arrived, I decided to write about it.
No idea what my theme might be this year, but I’m already working on my first poem. Wish me luck!
Thanks for reading and enjoy 🙂
