I'm writing poetry - at least one a week for my class and then many more on my fb page. I don't let them wander. The ones on my fb page are because I want to be on the darn thing (reasons: kids - mine by birth, marriage, friendship etc ... or the children of clients, or themselves being clients - I have to know how it works) and I didn't want to be on it in a regular old way. So ... I post a photo and a poem every so often. For two months in the summer I wrote one a day - 60 for being 60. It was lots of fun.
Yesterday, for my class, I wrote a sonnet. I wrote one many years ago for my undergraduate English class - we didn't have to, I just wanted to. Same thing now - it is like the lace I knit - a mathematical puzzle that creates some beauty if you follow the form just enough. It is that 'just enough' that is tricky.
I had a wonderful writing group experience last week and tomorrow I'll get to working on some changes inspired by that.
There ya go - that's me in the world of writing. Howzaboutyou?
