A wrap for NaPoWriMo & AtoZ Blogging Challenge 2017

Published 02nd May 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Did you survive?                        

I am so glad, finally finished the two blogging challenges I took up this year in the month of April successfully. This is the second time I am taking part in the two blogging challenge as the first time I took these challenges were in 2014.

This year I was not sure I would be able to finish both blogging challenges and if I could write every day.  Yes, in between I really wanted to quit, but still something, someone, some power in some or the other way pushed me on the next day as I woke up to keep up with the challenges.

A special thanks to my colleague come friend Cynthia who encouraged me every single day to keep writing, reading my blog, and correcting me in the places where I could have improved my writing in the AtoZ Challenge and during the NaPoWriMo she became a poet herself while I was trying to write the poems. Thank you Cynitha, it was fun writing, reading poems together. Your encouragement, everyday you were keen to read what I wrote on the prompt and your honest comments on my attempts really means a lot to me. Thank you so much.

Congrats to all those who had taken part in the NaPoWriMo or AtoZ Challenge. Below I have listed a few links who have participated in these challenges. And who have been encouraging me with their likes and comments.

Day 30 – NaPoWriMo 2017 – “NaPoWriMo”

Published 01st May 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Day 30 – And finally, our final prompt – at least until next year! Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something that happens again and again (kind of like NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo). It could be the setting of the sun, or your Aunt Georgia telling the same story at Thanksgiving every single year. It could be the swallows returning to Capistrano or how, without fail, you will lock your keys in the car whenever you go to the beach.

NaPoWriMo

Year after year,
New Challenge in April,
New prompts for 30 days,
A new form of poem each day,
Due to NaPoWriMo Challenge.

Year after year,
Your up with gear,
To face new challenge,
A repeated gift for yourself,
Which is NaPoWriMo Challenge.

Year after year,
You write 30 poems,
Along with unknown people,
In the journey you make few new friends,
Due to the NaPoWriMo Challenge.

Year after year,
Brings a smile on your face,
A satisfaction about yourself,
A memory so delightful,
Only due to NaPoWriMo Challenge!
