Believe it or not, writing can sometimes be a hard thing for me to do. I have had to overcome great boundaries, with immense stride, to get myself back into the writing groove. Particularly, since going rouge after going away to college.

I’ve had to literally retrain my brain, emotions and perspective to involve and with hope, overly indulge myself with the desire and perhaps, burning need and possible desperation, to write every moment of my life down. That is where I want to be, again. That is not where I am now.

I have previously written about my sometimes burning passion to get words out of me, in need of telling this story that’s so desperately meant to be told. But, I haven’t yet gone into the specifics of how a person, writer or not, can actually get back on, or initially join, the writing train. There is a lot of science to this stuff, believe it not. A different, more metaphysical science, I’d argue.

In any regard, at a later date, I’ll go into the perils and wonders of being a writer and my intent desire to see every single person in the world begin to see the writer in themselves. But for now, the point I’m making is made so I’ll just proceed to explain that I have decided to hone my discipline by doing a writing challenge, if you have it, inspired by daily writing prompts from Sarah Selecky’s blog.

I say all of that, lol, to say this, my first NaPoWriMo poem for the day is inspired by today’s 10 minute writing prompt in my journal. I was instructed to write a list titled, “Curtains I’ve Known.”

Here’s my list/ poem. Tell me what you think of it. What curtains have you all known? In the comments, write your own list/ poem about your past curtains. I’m curious to see what you all post!

And remember, you can join in the NaPoWriMo fun too, by writing your own poem and sending it in to be featured on EverythingShaquana. It’s so much fun and you can even be anonymous, if you prefer. But don’t miss out on the fun of writing poetry!
