Recent Pictures (and the stories behind them) | feat. what I do while I’m stuck at home

I was scrolling through my photos the other day and realized I've taken a lot more photos as of late, as I do things and send them to friends to keep them updated and as they do the same in return. I also have been doing lots of projects lately, reading lots of books, trying… Continue reading Recent Pictures (and the stories behind them) | feat. what I do while I’m stuck at home

You Are Invited: Exquisite Corpse Poetry

Hello friends! I recently was introduced to the poetry game called The Exquisite Corpse. The basic idea is to form a collaborative poem that is written by multiple people without any idea what the previous lines hold or say. I have played the drawing version, in which players fold pieces of paper and sketch horrors… Continue reading You Are Invited: Exquisite Corpse Poetry

Ode to 51 | in which the 51st post is about 51 the novel and roughly 51 semi-random facts concerning it

Last week I published my blog post and WordPress sent me a notification: boom. 50 posts. My reaction was not "woah I have written 50 blog posts" or "woah I'm still here and haven't disappeared yet" or even "woah no space monkeys sighted around here yet." Instead it was "NEXT WEEK IS POST 51??" The… Continue reading Ode to 51 | in which the 51st post is about 51 the novel and roughly 51 semi-random facts concerning it

Playing In Word Pools and Other Found Poetry

My grandmother gave it to me for Christmas and, in trying to immerse myself with ideas and inspiration, I have started it. So here we go with another entry in the journal of Evelyn-finds-something-neat-about-poetry-and-comes-to-share-it. Today's topic: word… Continue reading Playing In Word Pools and Other Found Poetry

Two Tags | a q&a session

After my absence, it's nice to return and have some tags to play with, so here's a little q&a session. I can't catch up with ever single tag I have been tagged for and so apologies for those I miss. My hasty records of tags were not sufficient. Some I have lost, some I only… Continue reading Two Tags | a q&a session

Thoughts On Dialogues | both the fictional and non fictional kind

On Monday I shall present for my class by memory a Socratic dialogue I have written. I have always found writing new things interesting, whether it be puzzling over a new poetry forms, reorganizing preexistent phrases as seen in bookbinder poetry, or experimenting with different point of views and tenses in a scene. Writing a… Continue reading Thoughts On Dialogues | both the fictional and non fictional kind

Return From An Unexpected Journey | writing is a habit, boundaries are your friends, + other collected bric-a-brac

BOOM BABY I am back. Throw some confetti and commence the apologies. After a long silence, I finally have stopped ignoring that nagging reminder in my head that I had a personal commitment to write every weekend. I had plenty of thoughts before, all those weeks that slipped away without a post, but no time… Continue reading Return From An Unexpected Journey | writing is a habit, boundaries are your friends, + other collected bric-a-brac

Last Minute Musings of the Courtroom Poet

Tomorrow I march with my team into battle. It's hard to summarize the experience of a full day of competition (I spent thirty minutes trying to explain it to two team mates the other day starting with the moment you wake before dawn and with numb fingers put on your suit to the moment the… Continue reading Last Minute Musings of the Courtroom Poet
