It's National Poetry Day in the UK today, Thursday 7th October 2010, and the theme is 'Home'.
We looked at this theme from a different point of view in Where Home is so today, let's write about what home really is for us, now, right at this moment.
Is it a place, a person, a feeling, a memory, an animal, a dream, a bowl of porridge, a tree, a book? The list is endless, and we could spend days, weeks and months making notes and working on drafts. But...
...the challenge is to write something today, to contribute to National Poetry Day, and post it today. Of course these will be early drafts and should not be scrutinised with a critical eye. And they won't be. But they will be evidence of our desire to write and be part of a wider writing community.
So post away, as many as you want. Let's celebrate!
