So ends April, and with it National/Global Poetry Writing Month. This was my second year participating, and it’s been both challenging and fun. The prompts from NaPoWriMo.net have fostered more creativity for the poetry, and the consistency of a poem (and review) a day has helped me get through quite a few diverse movies I might not have reviewed otherwise, from ‘80s comedies and old black-and-whites to unique animations and recent Oscar winners. Thank you to all who have read and liked and followed and commented over the last month, encouraging me to keep going.

Here’s the full list of the last month’s poems/reviews, if anyone missed a day:

The month’s been a bit exhausting so I’ll be returning to a more relaxed blogging schedule, probably back to two posts a week. School’s about over, but I’ve got other projects in the works. So onward into May, where you have your choice of National Smile Month, Better Hearing and Speech Month, or International Mediterranean Diet Month!
