and just Do
Progress every day
And make one step forward no matter what's in your way
Keep moving, till one day you wake up and you're there.” ― Emma Daley
Writing poetry every day for a month may be something that you do all the time, or it may seem like an impossible task, or at least difficult. Treats for success or treats for encouragement may help you stay on track.
It depends on my mood as to which I need but often it is knowing that dark chocolate and red wine are waiting for me to be finished will do it for me. Other times I will set a larger treat, such as taking myself to the movies, for writing one poem a day for a week or writing seven poems over a couple of days.
Whether you have little things to encourage your poetry journey or you just find loving ways to support yourself, remember, this is for you to dive in to see where your words will lead you. Be gentle to yourself and have compassion for your process of creating.
