I discovered NaPoWriMo a few days after an ex broke up with me. Before my story, I’d like to tell you what NaPoWriMo is.
NaPoWriMo is short for National Poetry Writing Month which is celebrated every April. The goal of the month is to publish a poem for every single day of the April calendar. They can be unrelated to each other and appear in the same way as Daily Prompts do.
Back to my story, It was colourful. It was a textbook case of “finding someone else in a clandestine manner” and I needed to let go the only thing I know how – write. I remember a college friend of mine telling me to “write until the guts are on the floor” so that was what Napowrimo turned out for me. A process of hatred and eventually recuperating from the wounds. I started a bit late (10th of April) but I managed to catch up and finish until the end (with some hiatus along the way). In the end, not only did I finish my first NaPoWriMo but it helped me recover from the fall I had.
