Reason for signing up:

I started a 100-day creativity project on April 1st and would like the last 30 days to be new poetry (as the first 30 days will be). I know several poets who do LexPoMo every year and have spoken highly of this group. While I was too busy the past 2 years with school work, this year I am ready! I'm excited for the challenge—and to be forced to "dig deeper" in my work.
