Thirty Days

Throughout these pages are the words and talents of countless individuals that I have had the pleasure to exhibit. Each article sheds new light on everyone from the up-and-coming to those that are level-and-past. With all that being said, I ask you what you bring to the table. What are you creating? Not only would I love to find out, I want it to be broadcasted from the tops of every building, radio tower, castle, and steeple. 

Some of you are already doing it. Some of you may need a push. For the latter half of you, don't beat yourself up - everyone needs some encourgement every now and then. A good place to begin your journey into the depths of your inner thoughts is to dive head-first into National Poetry Month.

Seeing that it is only March, I have given you plenty of heads up in regards to mentally preparing yourself to letting out your growing creative energy during the month of April. Throughout these four short weeks, challenge yourself to take parts in the events occurring throughout the country. 

Don't know where to find places to attend? The Academy of American Poets keep detailed archives of the happenings in all fifty states. 

Events are a good place to start, but where do you go from there? Well, you've already accomplished the hardest part which is to commit time to a growing passion. The next step is to write. Write anything. Write it again, then write some more. Simply get some words out. At first, the product might be less appetizing than a politcal rally thrown by a Kardashian, but this is where most projects begin. After you start polishing the words into something you start to feel proud of, take them to the public. Drop them anonymously on the streets, leave them in mailboxes, tape them to the back of a public bus. Give yourself thirty days to completely submerse yourself in the world of poetry. 

The beauty of this month is that it doesn't necessarily mean anything. The Gregorian calendar has multiple designations for all twelve of its disciples, but this doesn't take away the significance of committing time to an interest that is brewing. Start poetry month in March if you'd like. Swap out poetry for glass blowing. The possibilities are endless. The only thing that truly matters is that you start something.

Creativity begins with commitment. Start with thirty days and see where the road takes you.
