cafenowhere: coffee cup with sugar packets that read WTF (hola)
I have decided to revive my poem-a-day habit, with a few changes from the last go-round for the sake of my sanity.

I will be using a filter this time, so if you would like to be on the poem-a-day filter, please let me know in comments. Last time, I needed to practice letting poems into the wild. This time is different. I may be subbing these poems to publishers, so if you're an editor and would like to steer clear of working versions, I'll understand if you don't opt-in to the filter.

I won't necessarily post every day, though I will work on poetry every day. It may seem like a cheat, but I only intend to post so long as it's helpful to me. I want to maximize my good, not multiply my stress.

Some goals for my project: I miss noticing the things I notice when the poetry part of my brain is engaged, so I should exercise that part of my brain. I want to be awake! Maybe having a daily goal will ease the grip of my seasonal affective disorder, help me get out of bed every morning. I want to experiment with new forms and styles and subjects. I want to try more translations. I want to be poetry-connected enough that I recognize possible topics for reviews and critical articles. I want to model self-care and cultivation for my daughter.
