Write a poem about completing something

We are near the end of our 31 days. Tomorrow will be the final post. Many of the people I have talked to over the course of this project have planned to turn their 31 poems into a book, or at least use the poems toward a book. I am very hopeful that this happens, and I hope people drop me a line and let me know if they publish any of their poems. One of the great joys and terrors, is the completion of a long project. it is wonderful to sense that accomplishment, and also a little terrifying to lose a purpose you have stuck to for a long time. My advice is to think about what is next.  What do you want to do now?

You can publish, you can keep writing poetry, you can work on that novel. You can get on with your life. You can go watch TV. The possibilities are endless. I plan to get moving on National Novel Writing Month. What about you?
