Writing about Poetry Today

I hear from writers who say this time of year they just can't get motivated or inspired to write. I think that it is universal. When we spend time in our homes because of the weather, we find other things we need to do or want to do and just put off writing.

I found a wonderful site tonight that should give writers and poets plenty to think about and possibly to write about. Twenty-Five of the best poetry writing prompts had me making notes by those listed so I can write a poem or a story that the prompt uncovered deep in my mind.

Visit this site and let me know if you found anything that jolted a memory or an image for you.

One of my poems was accepted yesterday for publishing in April during the Poetry Parade on www.yourdailypoem.com The editor, Jayne Jaudon Ferrer has gone a great job with this site.

She says: This site exists for one purpose only: to help dispel the ugly myth that poetry is boring. Granted, a lot of poetry is boring, but you won't find it here. At Your Daily Poem, you'll find poetry that is touching, funny, provocative, inspiring, and surprising. It may punch you in the gut, it may bring tears to your eyes, it may make you laugh out loud, but it most assuredly will not bore you.

If you subscribe, you will receive a poem sent to you daily. 
Go the Archives of Your Daily Poem. Under the Bs in authors you will find my name.
Read other poems by me that were published and sent out to subscribers of Your Daily Poem. If you are a poet, think about sending one of your poems to Jayne at www.yourdailypoem.com

Your Daily Poem has more than a daily poem

If you haven't visited Jayne Jaudon Ferrer's site http://www.yourdailypoem.com/  and clicked on all the pages available, you are missing a treat. I subscribe to YDP and receive my daily poem in my Inbox, but tonight I took some time to check out the full website.
So much of interest there! I clicked on the Store page. Good books on poetry, framed poems by poets who have been published on YDP, including mine!!
She has a  Poetry News page.  Did you know a documentary on Carl Sandburg was released this summer? I missed that. I should be reading Jayne's website more often.
She has an Open Mic page where poets send in poems for critique. Maybe you'd like to do that and see what the readers say about it. Or just read the poems that have been sent in for critique.
I think it is safe to say that Jayne's website is about all things poetry.
