Repack Haiku

Like most bloggers, I have a perpetual "Fear of Content" - I'm always worried I'll develop writer's block, or run out of ideas, or simply just get so busy I go too long without posting something. It's happened to me numerous times with other blogs, and often it can be the beginning of the end for a blog. When I started this blog, I wanted to have at least something I could post once a week.

As someone who collects on the cheap, I enjoy the repacks I occasionally get from the Dollar Store. One of the hidden joys of repacks is that you can look through and appreciate each card in the pack. Every card has something worthwhile about it, and that was my inspiration for my Repack Haiku series. I bought a pack, and each card would get its own haiku poem. Often I find myself really studying the card, or even researching the player, just looking for inspiration. Once I have a general idea, the haiku are rather simple to create. Just like that, one little pack gives me 30 posts that I can create in bulk and schedule out weekly!

I've been doing these haiku for over a year now, and decided to create a separate page to showcase them all in one place. Enjoy!
