A poet set herself a creative challenge. For fifty-two weeks, she would share
two poems a week on her blog (http://beadedquill.wordpress.com/). "My rationale," explains Evans, "was that if I produced work consistently, some of it would be reasonable and some of it might be dismal. But by the law of the bell curve, a percentage was also bound to be close to good." Across the year, her 104 poems journal ordinary affairs, imaginative meanders and transcribed dreams. "In the Ocean" is this log of a year of poetry.
