As I said on Thursday, I owe you all a wrap-up post on the month. The daily challenge part of He Doodles, You ‘Ku has come to end, but we’re not done as a whole just yet.
First off, thanks to HM for his dedication and toiling away every day to bring us his lovely and inspiring doodles. Feel free to also shower him with any love, praise, and adulation. In addition, you might consider bookmarking the edge. There’s nothing there at the moment, but now that HM has wrapped up his work for Yay Words! (for now), he’s going to start to put together his own blog. I hear there will be art, design, and discussion of things.
Secondly, thanks to all of you for being such groovy people, playing along, and writing awesome poems. I’ve put a link to all the days of doodleku here. So if you missed a few days, or want to see what others wrote throughout the month, go for it. I’ll consider anything written up until February 9th (a week from today).
And now that we’re done with the challenge, what happens with these poems and doodles?
I mentioned at the beginning that HM and I would be taking the best of the best of each day and putting them into an e-collection (tentatively titled Mercurial Touch). Right now, I’m pulling all the poems from every day. In the next couple months, I’ll be emailing some of you for permissions to use your work. HM, meanwhile, will be working on the design and layout. We expect to be done sometime in the summer.
In the meantime, if you feel yourself going through doodleku withdrawal (I’ve heard this can happen), there’s several things you could do: 1) Hang around during National Haiku Writing Month; I’ll be drawn some doodles to go with my own poems. 2) Grit your teeth and wait until March for I Doodle, You ‘Ku 2013 (see last year’s here); 3) Do your own doodleku! (If you do, please link me; I’d love to see.)
Happy February. Doodleku on.

Thank you HM and Aubrie, I’ve enjoyed playing along with all of you!
Always love having you along for the ride, Terri! Thanks for all your nice little comments throughout the month as well. Talk about an ego boost for us.
Yes, thank you both, along with all the poets.

Thank you, Aubrie, for your always creative ideas for new challenges. And thanks HM for your wonderful “doodles”– they were all very evocative (and well drawn!). Another fun month of doodleku-ing!
Aww, thanks, Cara! I’m glad I can still keep you guys on your toes, so to speak.
thank you, hm and aubrie! I may dip back in and try catch some of the ones I missed, but it certainly was fun!
Dip as little or as much as you like! Of course, the more important part for me is that you had fun. 🙂
