“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” Arthur Ashe

This is where I am.

This 24 hour poetry marathon is a prompt to activate my seriously dormant writing practice and act as a creativity stimulant.

I didn’t realize until several days after signing up that I also work at my regular job for the first 7 hours of this marathon. I have decided to not let that be an excuse not to participate. I like challenges. I committed. There it is.

Use what you have.

I have plenty. It’s just scattered in a million tiny neurons I seem unable to access at times. Time to activate those neurons into new patterns of word groups……..poetry to the rescue!

Do what you can.

24 hours. 24 poems. I can.
