A Writerly Life: A Found Poem Slice of Life #sol19 26/31

Today’s slice is a found poem from Clare’s Not for the Writing, For Your Life, a slice I really enjoyed earlier in the month. For this found poem, I only used words in the order they appear in the original text. I had a very different poem in mind when I started working with Clare’s text, but I ended up liking the simplicity of the verbs, the writerly life as a sequence of actions.

  1. You’ve done so many clever and interesting slices this month. This is definitely one of them. And definitely captures the writing life.

  2. Clare’s original slice was great & I really like how you captured it here. I appreciate the repetition and the rhythm with the one word lines interrupted by the slightly longer ones. This really worked out!
