DigiWriMo (Day 23): I Regret #digiwrimo

Digiwrimo: I Regret

This November, Donna and I are taking part in #digiwrimo. What’s #digiwrimo? It’s Digital Writing Month, “a 30-day adventure through the world of digital narrative and art”. Here’s what the website says (although we recommend you visit to read much, much more and get some great ideas):

Digital Writing Month is a (somewhat) insane month-long writing challenge, a wild ride through the world of digital writing, wherein those daring enough to participate wield keyboard and cursor to create digital projects of text, image, and/or sound in the thirty days of November. Modeled after the inspirational National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), DigiWriMo asks writers to be creative not just with their words, but also with other digital media —image, video, and sound — and with what those media can do. We will work to redefine “writing” in the digital, and not confine it only to words, but open up the possibilities of narrative and exposition within multimedia and multimodal projects. Where that “writing” resides, what it looks like, how it interacts with other works and authors, is entirely up to the wild imaginings of each DigiWriMo participant.

Day 23: I Regret

Digiwrimo: I Regret

I regret not kissing Samantha Turner at the school disco,
I regret not trying out for the school football team,
I regret that prank we played on Lee Pilkington,
I regret failing my exams and not going to college,
I regret not travelling the world with Tanya Sanders,
I regret that I settled for the job I did,
I regret the affair I had with Cindy “Heart stopper” Hart,
I regret that my marriage to Sarah Jones fell apart,

I regret that one last drink at the office Christmas party,
I regret that I drove home instead of taking a taxi,
I regret that I took that turn too fast,
I regret that the road wasn’t empty,
I regret those four lives I took that night,
I regret that it took so much to make me realise
How much I have to regret.
