From the Author:

Dear Poet,
 
We created The Daily Poet: Day-By-Day Prompts For Your Writing Practice to help spark your creativity with 365 days of poetry-writing prompts.  Each day offers a unique exercise to get you closer to a new poem.
 
As you begin this book of daily writing exercises, here's some helpful advice:
 
 
1) There is no wrong way to complete a writing exercise.  Each exercise is designed to inspire and get you writing; this is our number one goal.  If the exercise prompts you to write about a monkey and you write about a purple smoking jacket, or the time you lost a tooth on the train, that's wonderful.  The goal is to write a poem a day, not feel bad your poem isn't following the exercise exactly.
 
2) You don't have to begin January 1st.  You can start your year of writing on whatever day it is by beginning on that page/date.  Or just start writing with January 1st as your first prompt.  Our prompts follow the seasons, holidays, and specific events that may have happened on that day in history, so you may want to complete the exercise for each specific day on the actual day, but you don't have to.
 
3) You are welcome to read any poem we may have suggested before writing, but it's not a requirement. Again, your main goal should be to simply write.
 
4) Consider creating a word list to enhance and augment your daily writing.  Throughout the day, write down interesting words you come across. Perhaps a neighbor said he was lollygagging.  Or someone pointed out to you a specific kind of flower or bird--a lady's slipper or foxglove, a killdeer or ruby-throated hummingbird--write that down.  Any words that may help inform or inspire your poems should be added to this ongoing list.
 
5) Have fun. Really, we created these exercises to help inspire you to write your best poems.  Be as untamed and untethered as you like, letting your imagination run wild.
 
6) If you get stuck, refer to Rule #1:  There is no wrong way to do a writing exercise...except to not write. 
 
 
 
So enjoy, go forth, and write the poems you need to write. Our hope is that these exercises lead you to compose inventive, original, and downright daring poems, leaving you with a healthy stack of work that will enrich not only your life, but perhaps the lives of fellow readers.
 
Wishing you encouragement, bravery, and a daily motivational spark, 

Kelli and Martha
