Hello, all. Welcome to the new followers [something I forget to do, so this may go back a while]. I am hearing you loud and clear, everyone: More Hoppers! If they are going to sustain this level of enthusiasm at this time of year, then I say, More Hoppers. But first, a Winslow Homer, deliberately without title. Write what you see.
Here is the link to the first Hopper exercise, with guidelines, if you wish them. If you are feeling a burst of energy, try something you have not tried yet, with the writing of your poem, a different approach, different form, different part of the painting.
Be warned. I am looking over January and I shall only be nice the week back from my own holiday. After that: MUAHAHAHA! But, I shall salt art through the exercises this coming year. You enjoy it so and I enjoy your enjoyment.
I shall see you Friday for the weekly roundup of prompts and exercises. Then I will be dark until the first week of January. What with Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s, I’m thinking everyone’s brain needs a rest. But, even when caught up in the fun and frenzy, we never stop being writers. Jot notes of imagery, scenes you notice, bits of conversation. Take photographs to remind you. Above all, enjoy.
Happy writing, all. Oh, and the first issue of Curio is up and is lovely. Go visit and read the poems.
