This is a bitter-sweet post. Before any of your lose your mittens (please look at the photo I thought of after typing that), I am not referring to the end of the East Coast Insomnia. No, this post is all about 365 Days of Poetry. After many long conversations with D, I feel like this is the best decision — for both myself and for my blog. Anyone who has followed me for any period of time knows that I am unable to post every day, due to school and work, so instead of being an enjoyable challenge, it became one more thing to stress about. Although you may not know it, most of the 365 DOP posts are some of my worst poem, for the sheer fact that they were posted just to have a post. It isn’t the writer that I want to be. I want to write because I want to write.
So, will I still be posting poems? — absolutely. You can just expect normal titles from here on out. Thank you, once again, for your continued support. I hope that this decision is one that will benefit East Coast as a whole.
