Tomorrow marks one year of my journey in poem writing! It all begin on April 1, 2013 with the NaPoWriMo Challenge of writing a poem a day.  After finishing that April 2013 challenge I found I so enjoyed it that just kept writing a poem a day and thus this blog continued on.  It has been such a rewarding experience for me!  I have learned so much and have met so many interesting,talented people along the way.  I feel blessed for the opportunity! I hope to continue on with writing a poem day and plan to join in the April 2014 NaPoWriMo Challenge beginning tomorrow.  –Leona
