Each week I will be posting different prompts or writing activities that I will do myself and then show you here. I highly encourage you to try them out for yourself!
This week's assignment is deletion poetry. I learned about this the summer before my freshman year of high school going to a college writing workshop. I think it's super neat and fun even if it's not the easiest way to make good writing.
Basically all you do is take a page of a book or magazine that you don't care for and a pen or marker and cross out words until you make your poem. It's so cool to see what you can make out of something else and even if it doesn't always make sense it's kind of neat to think about why you picked certain words.
After you are done you can type it up and save it for good.
Here is my poem:
You know it.
Lily has red hair, green eyes, and marvels about how words come inside your armor.
Just a look, or a comment can send you
handsome confidence and beauty
She thinks she's inspiring you or
maybe she might even see a little bit of herself in you,
and words are
meant to make you feel total inner peace.
I hope you find this as entertaining as I do!
Happy Wednesday. Sarah Jasmine.
