Focussed? Well, sort of.
Anyway, I did manage to focus eventually, found an object to write about and am at present trying to draft my poem about a ceramic lobster in a pot (I kid you not!)
The Poetry School online course had live chat on Monday. I still can't find a voice there and I am beginning to think 'chat' is not for me. My poem received very good feedback - it was a humorous look at struggling with numbers in Villenelle form. Wasn't sure how it would go down but people enjoyed it. The third, and last, assignment is to mix things up, take the Villenelle as far as possible without losing structure. Sounds too complicated for me. I've edited one I wrote a few weeks back which is more or less a 'bog standard' Villanelle which I will use if I run out of time to produce anything different.
