How to write poetry

How to write poetry: Poet Wendy Cope explains what makes a really superb poem

For me it just starts with inspiration which is an idea, I scribble it down (sometimes I can’t make out a word later on but I keep at figuring it out)

Sometimes I get stuck with only a line and I toil over years with finishing it or just include it for a later idea (I have a page of ideas of phrases etc. word play and so on)

Read! There have been times where a paragraph or description in a book has inspired me! Pay attention to Pop culture (I have a poem pertaining to this a bit and it’s one of my humorous ones at least supposed to be)

I  play sort of a game, in which for example I use the songs on an album   (or a bands catalog …all their song titles) as prompts and try to fit them all into a poem (or some sort of creative writing) I used to do with with my vocabulary words in school sometimes.

 

Want some words for prompts?

I’ll start you with 5

Melancholy

Defiance

Mercurial

turbid

perfunctory

and a BONUS

 

one of my favorite words…

BOISTEROUS– this is my favorite vocab word from school ever! I still remember the day we were reading our sentences for example and I knew I had an great one. I raised my hand to read it and the teach thought it was used perfectly. (If only I could remember the way I worded the sentence! I do believe it is in one of my poems So you can check that page in the menu.) It was something like the Boisterous roars of thunder.

Book lovers décor suggestions

Well it’s that time of year to start the spring cleaning. I hope you haven’t already as I have some organizer and decor ideas for you.

Though I hope if you have a love of books would not destroy them in such a way, especially those that are not old looking books they could be worth money! I can understand old school books for the hideaways or purse or maybe someone gave you a copy of a book you already have. I can understand if you want to do it with the extra but I would rather donate mine to a school, or someone that cannot afford books and has a hard time getting around (to a library)

 

I Iike the  color grouping and giant wall clock! I would use all the janet Evanovich books! That Scrabble letter holder idea, you could also do that with scraps of a type of moulding as that’s what those are. The storage bins ad omg the lamp of large thread bobbins but how the heck did they get them in the wall? and ceiling that I really like!  My favorite though has to be the stairs. I wish ours were like that or even ones that opened for storage.

Happy Holidays blurb

No that wasn’t me in the punch again… Wanted to wish you a happy everything & anything you may celebrate and though ‘class’ is on hiatus for the holidays I figured for those that have or are close to finishing possible stories, noels etc they want to publish… that I’d include some help wish you luck and that maybe as a late (or really early 2016 gift) it will get published!
