April was a cruel month this year, with two weeks of school holiday following some weeks of vague depression, but I was able to keep things moving during the first week of the holidays, and didn't lose momentum or the freshly regained motivation.
It is hard to quantify poems and working on poems. It isn't like generating fiction where you can document daily word counts. So when I've worked on poems I try to summarize what exactly it was I did.
I was keen to have a cool little graphic to show what I've been working on all month, and I've done that, partly, but I don't know (yet) how to get it into this post, or onto the sidebar, but I think this will work. When you're viewing these stats, remember that I'm writing for about one hour a day, four days a week, and we always hope for a little bit more on Fridays.
