Welcome & FAQ
Welcome everyone! Thank you for taking this journey of creative writing with me. This is the post where I do my best to answer the most Frequently Asked Questions about how this whole process goes. Let’s begin:
What in the hell is a 30/30?
Thirty poems in thirty days. That’s it and that’s all. Some people will do a poem per day, some will write in bunches. The goal is to have a total of 30 poems at the end of the journey; how you get there is up to you.
Why are we doing it?
To give our creative muscles some exercise! The best way to keep those mental muscles strong is to work them out. This is an opportunity to do so. This whole thing started as a personal challenge the ‘organizer’ was taking on himself, and somehow grew into a movement.
What are rules?
Umm…there are no rules, really. Then only ‘rule’ here is that you enjoy and challenge yourself.
Who’s organizing it?
‘Organize’ isn’t exactly the right word, but if someone had to be chosen, it would be Stefan (@revizion)
What kinds of poems should I write?
There is no specific form, so do what you are comfortable with. Free form, haiku, sonnets, etc. Read more about forms here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poetic_form#Form
