9:09 a.m. — San Antonio
listening to I Love a Rainy Night sung by Eddie Rabbitt (one of my all time favourite songs)
Hello, everyone. I hope you are well. I am sitting under grey skies, hoping it will rain. While I wait, here are a few things to investigate.
1] How about you find out how well you know the style of a few well-known poets? I enjoyed the short quiz as much for the illustrations as seeing whether I knew my poets’ styles. You’ll find Match the Poetry Quote to the Poet! on the site For Reading Addicts.
2] Now that you are warmed up, let’s head to a visual feast that can keep you distracted for hours. The site Bored Panda has an article on New Zealand artist Brian Dettmer’s work. If you haven’t seen his book sculptures, you’re in for a treat. I’ ve seen one or two, but not a collection like this. The article, ‘Book Surgeon’ Uses Surgical Tools to Make Incredible Book Sculptures is dangerous. Don’t look if you have an appointment you need to get to.
3] Trish Hopkinson had an article out, recently, on tanka submission calls and sites. The calls are for this month, which is close to ending, so I visited a site she suggested, All Things Tanka. If you write in this form, it’s a wonderful site; if you don’t, you might consider giving it a try, because this site is well-crafted and useful. I have sent you to the About Tanka page, but you’ll see it’s easy to navigate to their other pages.
4] Finally, something that made me laugh and which involves bacon. The image is courtesy of Grammarly, but I found it on The Writer’s Circle.
I will see you Tuesday for an image prompt and next Thursday for NaNoWriMo links. It’s that time again.
Happy writing, all
