Once again, National Poetry Writing Month has come to an end, and looking back, it’s hard to believe that I was able to keep up for the most part. The last two days’ poems were a bit delayed, but thirty poems in thirty days still makes me tired just thinking about it, though it helped that I had some of my reviews already done in reserve to speed up the process. The fact that I finished up my semester projects at the same time just adds to the exhaustion.

Yet I also read some great work by other poets, found inspiration, and got to see and review some really phenomenal movies this month, most of which were fairly recent due to my catching up on films of late, so I thought I’d post another recap of my NaPoWriMo exploits. A huge thank you to everyone who liked, followed, and commented along the way, and to everyone else who participated in NaPoWriMo this year, I’d like to say “Well done!”
