This poem was prompted by Poetic Asides. I hope you will visit that site for inspiration.

How To Write 365

First you commit to
Accomplishing something each
Day you have not done
Before artistically
With great creativity.

You make the effort,
Do your very best writing,
Keep effectively
Working outside your limits
Until you make your success.

You continue to
Do the work despite feeling
Like skipping a day,
You dedicate yourself to
More than you think possible.

You find a few to
Support your endeavors with
Their encouragement
You build up your confidence,
You do it over again.

You do not ever
Stop until your labor is
Vindicated in
Tremendous victory that
Covers the whole of a year.

I am grateful:

1.   I enjoyed WrestleMania last night.
2.   I was able to get an appointment with my chiropractor today.
3.   I was able to re-check all the books I had from the Dog River Library.
4.   Mom was willing to have sandwiches for supper.
5.   Leigh is doing well in school despite having some difficult group assignments.



My Monday went well, despite some unrelenting pain. I hope your day was all you hoped it would be. Now I recommend you make an effort to accomplish something creatively. No day is really complete until you have produced something uniquely your own. I believe you have all the talent required, just do your best.

As a prompt, write about the last picture I posted today. That is quite a creature, and I am sure you can write a poem, story, or journal entry in which it stars. If you use this prompt please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Thank you for visiting my blog. It is a great honor to have your presence here. You might enjoy subscribing to Chronicles so you get email updates. Any thoughts, suggestions, or criticism you have to offer is greatly appreciated, so please leave a comment.
