I don’t know if people post a lot of things on here that are not related to poetry, but I’m trying to journal the whole experience. Today I started a new notebook for the marathon and planned a tentative list of what my poetry goal will be for each hour. I’ve collected poetry scraps from my other notebooks that were just waiting for the right time (or really any time as a single parent home during COVID) and Saturday is the time.
I’m curious about how other people prepare or if they just jump right in. Do you use the time to revise drafts? Do you look out the window and just go? Do you stay in one place the whole time or do you move about and write in all places inside and out?
