It had been so long since I had written poetry on a regular basis I didn't even know what kind of poetry I wanted to write.
This time I am going to have a plan and I am going to share that plan with you one tip at a time during our count down to the OctPoWriMo challenge.
Tip One: Figure out what kind of poetry you want to write or if you want to explore more than one type.
I found this fascinating site Shadow Poetry that has quite an expansive list of types of poetry and examples. Unfortunately this site will be closing on September 31, 2012 so I recommend you check it out before then. This will be my first step to exploring what type I want to write for this round of a poetry writing challenge.
