What Are You Reading Now?: Slice of Life #sol19

I look forward to Tuesday mornings all week. Not only is Tuesday slicing day, so I know I have some wonderful blog posts to read and comment on, it’s also the day the new episode of my favorite podcast, What Should I Read Next, releases. In today’s episode, Anne Bogel talks to Will Schwalbe, author…

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #imwayr 5/13/19

On the blog: Three things I need more of right now (includes very cute kitten photo!) In reading: I don’t think I’ve ever met a Barbara O’Connor novel I didn’t love, and Wonderland has plenty to recommend it. It’s told in three voices, including Henry’s, a greyhound who has run away from a dog track…

I’ll be creating poems using haikubes, metaphor dice, magnet poetry, paint chips and anything else that catches my fancy. Today I decided to do a backwards paint chip poem. I don’t think that’s really a thing, but I…

Metaphor Dice Poetry: Playing with Poetry #playingwithpoetryNPM 28/30

This month, I’m tagging along with Christie, Margaret, Jone, Mary Lee, and other writers to play with poetry for National Poetry Writing Month. I’ll be creating poems using haikubes, metaphor dice, magnet poetry, paint chips and anything else that catches my fancy. I thought that all of these poetry metaphors had some potential, and I initially thought I might write a…
