*sighs* Poetry

 

I’ve stumbled upon this blog recently, and it’s gotten me really interested in poetry.

Before I read that blog, I had barely looked at poetry; the only time I had written it was the time I was forced to for English class, and I’d rarely read any of it willingly. I knew there was something about lines and feet and meters, but I figured that most poems just rhymed with the exceptions being Free-verse or Haiku, and that was that.

Only now do I realize how wrong I was. Poetry is really something deeper than I realized. It comes from the soul, and is really quite beautiful. The different types of poems; from Luc Bat, Diagonal Acrostic, Sestina, or just a simple Couplet, are really quite amazing and can be quite complex.

I’m not claiming to know a lot about poetry (or even writing prose, for that matter). But that’s something that I definitely want to change. I feel that with writing and gaining skill in poetry, I’ll also gain skill at writing prose, which is still going to remain one of my more prominent art forms.

I apologize for the short post, but I almost forgot about this and I had to write a little quickie.

Romeo, Romeo, Wherefore Art Thou Romeo?

Hey everyone, I’m back! I’m sure you all missed me!

It’s the end(ish) of March. And you know what that means; Script Frenzy (Screnzy) is around the corner. What is Screnzy, you might ask? Well, it’s when authors from around the world try their hand at writing a one hundred page script in just thirty days!

Will I be doing this come April? Absolutely.

Scriptwriting is very fun. There are certain things you can get away with in scripts that would be a sin in a novel. For example, I’m very bad at description. While in novels I have to spend painful minutes trying to find out how to describe the house, in a script I can just say exactly how I want the house to look.

A con of scriptwriting is that you can’t give background, which I love doing (though not very well). Perhaps they come across an old relic that has been used in sacred rituals for hundreds of years. I can’t just write that in the description; if it were an actual movie, they wouldn’t know that, so it wouldn’t be important.

So overall, I encourage all of you dear readers to try your hand at scriptwriting this April. Will all of you succeed? Probably not. But that’s not the goal; the goal is to have fun with all of your other writers while trying something new.
