Why Do I Write?

Addressed

Here,

Here,

Here,  and                                                            (probably my favorite)

Here.                                                             (the post with the most resources)

But is it really that simple?




6 Words

A.

Breathing in,

Breathing out.

Drafting. Revising

 

B.

Music roaring

Thoughts flowing

Ideas Recorded

 

C.

Writing is thinking.

Sharing the page.




Abecedarian

Absent

But

Clouding, and

Darkening

Each

Finger.

Grasping

Happiness, or an

Imaginative

Jalopy

Kowtowing to a

Lincoln or a

Maserati.

Never

Odd.

Perpetually

Quiet.

Recording

Some

Thoughts –

Unveiling a

Very

Worried,

eXhausted

Zombie.




To Write or Not to Write

To write, or not to write, that is the question:
Whether ’tis important for a writing teacher
To know the pain of a lost or fading muse,
Coaxing words from a fledgling writer by example
Taking pen to scribe the truth. To write – to live.



                  Acrostic
Waiting for the
Right words,
Impatiently waiting,
Tapping fingers
Impervious to an audience.
Never
Giving up!

What format works for you?

Which ones are favorites for your students?

This post I wrote to PLAY!

And then I could not decide what to keep and what to discard!

    1. Thanks, Fran! So much fun sometimes to try somet!hing different

  3. Great way to showcase so many different formats. I think my favorite is the acrostic, especially the last two lines…”Never Giving up!”

    1. So many ways to write and share! Perfect place to do so during the monthly writing . . . and at the mid-point!

  4. Even though they all have a common theme, I love seeing how each poem is different. Playing with words is one of the things that makes writing so fun!

    1. Thanks, Cara! Just the change in format manages to change the ideas!
