There is a saying "When the student is ready, the master appears." I love this saying.
In my case, I have had a project in mind for a chapbook. Because of the "subject" and "form" I plan to use, I think a full-length book might be pushing it. And so, as November nears, I find out about Robert Lee Brewer's "2010 November PAD Chapbook Challenge"!
10 to 20 poems in a month. Yep. I think I can. If I can't, I'll have fun trying. The subject matter is interesting and I'll have to hit the library to do some extra research, but I feel like the time is right, some projects are coming to an end, and I'm gonna be sure as hell to not let the fallen leaves of November take over my life as they did last year.
If you're up for a challenge, here's the link to the rules. I won't be submitting for the contest, but I'm taking up the challenge to get this project underway.
Who's with me?
