- You could ‘talk’ your poem into your smartphone or tablet, perhaps while you are soaking in a nice relaxing bubble bath, or walking the dog!
- You can write anything you like, or to make things a little easier, you can refer to the list of prompts on the NaPoWriMo site.
Tips to make things a little more interesting
- You could invest in a lovely notepad solely for the purpose of your poetry
- You could even illustrate your poems
