I'm trying out the November Poem-A-Day Challenge run by Writer's Digest. Each day in November, they post a poetry writing prompt. At the end of the month, you gather your best 10-20 poems and submit them for consideration to be published as a chapbook (a small, pocket-sized book) of poetry by Writer's Digest. You can read my poems below! 

EDIT JANUARY 2014: Well, as you can tell I only made it about halfway through the month's challenge. I meant to catch up, but between holidays/work/sickness/life-you-know I never was able to. However, I'm proud to have written sixteen new poems in the month and look forward to eventually revising them!
