My name is Meg and this is my first poetry marathon! I’m from Geelong Vic Australia
I’m looking forward to the challenge of producing a number of poems in a relatively short period of time.
Also I’m a relative newbie to the writing scene. I’ve been writing poetry since my early teenage years mainly as an avenue of self expression and reflection of the many stages in my life. As I’ve become older I have definately enjoyed inspirational writing.
I have oodles amount of notebooks with poetry and other writing and decided recently to compile them all into an ebook. I’m hoping this marathon will assist me in developing a discipline to write regularly instead of spasmodically as it has always been.
How I’ve been preparing for this challenge is firstly clearing my schedule. I’m a dedicated runner so the run will be early morning and out of the way before the 9am start.
I’ve been noting ideas in a notebook for several poems as a prompt so if I do run out of ideas I have some prepared. Also looking at sleep breaks if required and setting alarms so that I’m awake to post each hour.
I’m looking forward to connecting with other writers and joining the community as having support and a common goal is positive and assists every one
