If you read my other blog you'll know I've had quite a busy week with various activities and writing has been pushed out a bit. However, I did manage to write my last Villanelle for my Poetry School course which still keeps a structure yet breaks some rules. I wonder what everyone will make of it tomorrow night for our last live chat.
I also finished my 'Lobster' poem for the Thursday class. We excelled ourselves I think as there were some really good poems. I have rewritten the last few lines of the last stanza as suggested by tutor and fellow class mates and feel this is a better ending.
I have written a couple of new poems too, one is a Haiku, the other in three stanzas, so actually I have done better than I first thought considering lack of time. Even so, I still need to read all the other Villanelle's before tomorrow night and make some notes. I have another busy week coming up...in fact all weeks until Christmas seem busy now, but at least I will have one course less to prepare for every week.
I've just received a copy of Christopher James The Manly Art of Knitting and enjoying his poetic humour.
