The bad news is that I only got four pages done. This is because I was putting the finishing touches on Autumn Sky Poetry so I could send out the DRAFT to my contributors. And also I had to clean the bathroom. During which I cut my finger. This made typing very painful, so I had to go slower. Thus: four pages instead of fifteen. Oh well. That's it for today. Gotta get a bicycle ride in before I go insane. It's been two days and already my legs are freaking out from the inaction.

Her forum seeks to spark poetry, introduce poets' to others work
From the article:
I did some online searching and found a number of poetry Web sites, many with participatory forums. The one actually using the term Poem Spark was the discussion forum of Poets.org, the Web site of the Academy of American Poets.
The forum's administrator is Christine Klocek-Lim, a poet and photographer who lives in northeastern Pennsylvania. At the time she joined the forum as a volunteer moderator in 2005, it offered things like listings of conferences and grants and a workshop in which writers post their work for critique by other participants.
"After looking at some other online workshops, I realized that many of them had exercises that they used to prompt the writing of new poems," said Klocek-Lim. She wanted to add a feature like that, but didn't want to use the term "exercise."
So the Poem Spark was born."
