Well, Michele of Scholar’s Blog and I didn’t participate in MotherReader’s 48 Hour Book Challenge—but we did a lot of writing this past weekend. I made up my own personal Wild Rose Reader 48 Hour Poetry Writing Challenge. I didn’t count up the minutes and hours I spent composing animal mask poems. That would have been too difficult because I was writing poetry while also doing research for and writing up my Here is a Poem About…#2 post and reading an adult nonfiction book. We also had two family birthdays to celebrate this weekend.
I challenged myself to write and polish six poems. I wrote and polished six poems. I may still tweak some of the poems a bit if I think I can make them better—and I may also change some of the titles.
