The first term of my poetry course finishes next week. On Thursday we read our pieces on silence/noise and work-shopped our poems. I had some helpful criticism of my poem called December, though one idea I couldn't agree with - if I took out the first two lines I might as well make it into a Haiku as the poem is short anyway (plus there is a least one great line!). However, perhaps that's what I should do - could try it, I guess, but I like the way most of the lines work and my tutor loved the last short stanza and most of the rest. So perhaps just a 'twiddle' is needed.
On my other blog there is an Advent Prayer which I wrote last year (I think), if you would like to take a look at that. Because I am doing daily posts on that blog (for Advent) I will be posting up seasonal poems and maybe very short stories there as part of my 'Advent Calendar'. So do take a look there this month for my creative writing outlet! A more normal service will resume after that.
