And I have the enthusiasm of a new convert. I spent last Friday.....delighting in all the sharings. Big sharings, small sharings....the great connected communication. I'm so hooked.
Today I offer what I think is a strange contribution. But, perhaps it's not. I took the challenge of writing Jane Yolen's created form tercet and have been tinkering with it as I have time in the week. Below is a snapshot of the page I'm working from.
On the left is the original crappy draft.....yep, the one that no one is supposed to ever see according to Ann Lamott (Lamott, Anne. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. N.p.: Archer, 1995. Print.). If you've never read or listened to Lamott's book I highly encourage you to do so. The version from audible had me cackling out loud while doing dishes and laundry----confirming to my family that I have indeed gone nuts!
The version on the right is the sandbox of what I"m playing with. See that I've given myself the additional challenge of making the number 21 part of the poem....the 3 x7 has appealed to me. This is my sudoku.
I may finish this poem......or not. But, it's the fun of the challenge and the working at it that is my joy and what I have to share today.
Happy writing all! and be sure not to miss ALL the Poetry Friday connections happening today. This week's event is hosted by Diane Mayr at: http://randomnoodling.blogspot.com/
She has a lovely library blog I am also getting to know called Kurious Kitty's Kurio Kabinet. Check that out as well.
