It’s here, the final word on the final day of NaPoWriMo and I’ve done it. Thirty poems in thirty days, what a trip we’ve had. For my final word I’ve raided my bookcase again for an old writing book, and it’s small dictionary section. I am a collector of old grammar and writing books, I find them fascinating. Even though at times my grammar and punctuation are appalling. It’s an old book as well, leather-bound and in good condition, from about the 1920’s I think, although there is no date inside. Let me know what you think about this kind of writing, I’m trying it out to see how it works, and I wanted to use the last day to say the final word in a poem. I hope you’ve found something you liked as the month has passed, and I’ll get back to replying to you all soon.
