All this year, I've been writing a poem a day. I said I would write a poem a day until a larger project pulled me away. This month I'm adapting Carmen (the opera) for teens. For most of the month I have continued to write a poem a day. This week I have missed a couple of days as I have spent more time on the opera. After I finish my first draft by the 31st, I plan to dive back into The Hounding (my mystery novel) which was published as an eBook back in 1999, for a complete rewrite. eBooks have finally found their time, and The Hounding needs to step into the 21st century. So, I may become more sporadic with my poetry writing, but I will continue to write every day. This is a terrific commitment, once which gives me great joy and a feeling of accomplishment.
