NaPoWriMo has begun

My first poem is up. I used 6 or 7 different Bibliomancy Oracle prompts to nudge me.

Sure, NaPoWriMo poems are drafts and inherently rough. But it's about the process, right? Right. A lot of my NaPoWriMo drafts grew up to be honest-to-goodness poems in God Damsel.

It's not too late to join the party. All the details are here at Maureen Thorson's NaPoWriMo site.


  1. Yes, yes, it *is" the process, but of course the Oracle helps us get to the process. You're an inspiration, Reb!

  2. I stumbled upon NaPoWriMo on accident today, which led me to the prompt of creating a poem from the Oracle. I am so happy I found it. I love reading things like that. I seen you were in Northern Virginia. Wanted to say that I'm in awe of everything you have accomplished so far. I look forward to reading more of your poetry. I'm in southwestern Virginia, an hour away from Roanoke. Today was absolutely gorgeous.

  3. Drew & Donetta, thank you both for your kind words about the Oracle. I've been adding to it for over two years and have grown very fond of it. I'm glad you find it useful too.
