An after I wrote based upon a poem from Amanda Baker.
Establishing a strong support system is one of the most important actions you will take during this challenge because it is one that will enrich your life in all areas, not just with stopping procrastination. Having the right people in your corner will ensure you have folks to share your goals and celebrate successes with. Community is necessary to succeed in living a proactive and truly fulfilling life.

I’ve been playing around with a new poem and trying this editing thing I’ve heard so much about when it comes to poetry. I usually write and post, never looking back to rework lines or improve my writing. New year, new process.
How do you work through your poetry? One and done or rework until perfect?
