Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
Here are some Velcro?balls we’re throwing at targets all this week at a Young Authors Conference. I’m sharing the poetry activity here next week, so if you’re curious, stay tuned. Meanwhile, here are three things this picture reminds of:
2) kids who are rude and prickly to protect themselves
3) tennis lessons when I was a kid

Now it’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS!??(Title doesn’t count toward word count:>)?
[Note: I’m teaching Young Authors Conferences all week, so I won’t be commenting on poems. Boy. I am overwhelmed with deadlines and projects and revisions right now. So much going on! Hopefully things will settle down soon.]
