Walden Erasures, Page 11

These are starting to get weird now. The first thing I noticed on this page was the use of first-person, and I knew I wanted to play on that. I’ve been wanting to focus on the verbs too, because when they’re strong enough, they can carry an entire story. Here, I tried to highlight both,…

I was told to keep writing these, so I absolutely will. I went into this erasure trying to leave as little as possible. There were interesting objects that spoke to me right off the bat. The end, I thought, was a nice touch too. I hope you think the same! Walden Erasures, Page 9

I promise a story is coming soon. Just not right now. And by soon, I mean I have no idea. Hopefully this weekend I’ll have some time to write something up. I have not grown tired of these yet so neither should you! Page 8 was a lot like page 7. It was much easier…

The Girl in the Grey

I was asked to write about something other than me observing stuff because it wasn’t as creative as my normal work, so I took the liberty to observe her doing work in Starbucks. The Girl in the Grey The girl in the grey hoodie with white strings dangling down as she types leans over her…

Karl Ove Knausgaard

How into the literary world are you all? My MFA program introduced me to Literature with a capital L, and showed me where to find it. Now that I’m working and writing all day, I’m no longer able to totally immerse myself in the writing world. But there are ways to stay on top of…

When Two People Fall in Love

Two posts today! Consider yourselves lucky! I wrote this very quickly during a conversation with someone special. Normally, I save these poems for her, but I want to post this one so I am. Something clicked in me while we were talking and I felt a little bad while writing it because I was going…

Mother/Daughter

Almost forgot to post a story tonight! Imagine that: one day into the streak and I fuck it up. Not this time, though! This story, again, comes from class. Here, we were given a photocopied page of a weird book about songs people used to sing while working around the house. The first section of…

Prose Poem

I hate prose poetry, but maybe I like this? I had to write one for a tiny text class and came up with this in a fit of writer’s block. To get out of it, I decided to just write how I felt about the genre, or lack of genre(?), instead. So tell me: Do…

The Suburbs

Sorry for the delay! Trying to play catch up on all my school assignments. This is a poem that’s going to be workshopped on Monday. The class is so tough. Everyone is really talented. I feel like I’m constantly playing catch up just to get to their level. Anyways, here’s my attempt. Enjoy! The Suburbs…

International Day of Peace

The streak continues! This time I have a poem that I wrote on the International Day of Peace. Yes, the title is ironic. I got mixed reactions in my poetry workshop but I like how it sounds so I’m posting it anyways. Hope you enjoy too. I’ll have another lined up for tomorrow too. International…

Another

Woah, actually posting on here. Summer’s still insane, but my classes are finally over. I’m taking all writing classes in the fall so I have a feeling that I’ll actually be posting very frequently on here. Class starts the 29th so keep an eye out!  I wrote this long, long poem a little while ago…

One Moment

A little girly, but I’ve been coming up with a lot of nice lines to work with lately. My original intent was to somehow put them into a story, but I think they fit better like this. You be the judge. Enjoy. One Moment One moment, a smile, is all I need to run away…
