Writing Prompt: January 30, 2019

Hello Writers! This week, I want us to think about the length of time we allow ourselves to utilize when writing a poem. For some, the poem comes to the poet in an instant, for others, it takes months of revision. This week's prompt is merely a half-hour or so long exercise to generate content. I hope that you discover something (be it a line, a concept, or an entire poem) in the process. Take 30 minutes. Write one line each minute. Then for 30 seconds, just breathe.
