Well, everyone, I’m happy to say that I’ve made it to the end of November’s Poem-a-Day challenge! It’s definitely been difficult, but I managed to write thirty new poems over the course of a month.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend, everybody! I’m here with seven more rough drafts of poems written off of prompts from the Writer’s Digest poem-a-day challenge.
