Hi 2020 Poetry Marathoners!!

Hello everyone!

What’s up peeps!

Hi there!

This is my first time doing this poetry marathon and using WordPress, so I’m hoping everything goes smoothly. I’m not sure what I should write about in this post, but it said to introduce yourself, so I guess I’ll try to briefly introduce myself.

I’m sixteen years old, supposed to have my learner’s permit right now, and incredibly stressed because I know junior year is going to be awful once it’s September 2020. I just wanted have some fun with my friends this summer (since most of them can legally drive now), but instead, I’m stuck at home, reading three biology textbooks, preparing for these ridiculously stress inducing competitions, trying to write music and lyrics at 3 AM for this band I’m in, looking for online jobs because the place I wanted to apply for is still closed, and stealing the Xbox from my brother, who keeps hogging it, so I can finally play Call of Duty.

I’ve been doing creative writing for a long time now (I think I really started getting into it in fourth or fifth grade), but I don’t think I’ve ever written 24 poems in 24 hours, or 12 poems in 12 hours… heck, I don’t think I’ve even written more than 2 poems in a single day! Hopefully, my brain doesn’t cancel on my last minute. I really don’t want to have a writer’s block in the middle of the marathon.

That would really suck.

Anyway, my life is kind of a mess interesting right now, but thankfully, this marathon is still taking place! I’ll be doing the half-marathon this year, since it’s my first time. I also really don’t want to pull any more all-nighters than I need to.

Well, I think that’s enough about me for now. Good luck to everyone participating, and for those doing the full marathon, I’m wishing you some extra good luck with staying up all night!

Selina 🙂
