New Poem

Interpret

We watch, we learn,
We create our lives
Moment by moment,
Day by day,
Event by event.
Experience tells us
How to interpret our world
Love tells us
How to accept ourselves

Writing Prompts

Even though I am working on a novel, I sometimes want to change the scenery, so to speak, and write something different.  My intention is to keep the prose fresh by exercising other types of writing. Yesterday was such a day.  I was running through my twitter feed and found a writing prompt from @prompt_fairy (mahalo, by the way).  The prompt was for a flash fiction, but I used it in a poem.  It’s a little dark, not my usual style, but I enjoyed writing it.  You can read it here if you’re so inclined.

So, in my usual early morning writing session today, I put down 836 words, including the beginnings of a new subplot.  This is why, for me, writing outside of the main project once in awhile helps expand my creative flow. What “devices” do you use to increase your creative flow?
