Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
I mentioned that I was going to try writing poems in 20 different places this year for #20for20. I don’t know if I shared my list of places here yet, but one of them was the orchestra. That’s where I jotted down the very different lines that eventually became this poem.
Along the way, I wrote revised drafts in McDonald’s and a surgery waiting room. Bonus points?
(I am concentrating on sharing drafts and writing process stuff in my Patreon Community, Writer in Progress. Check it out if you might be interested! I’m hoping sharing drafts and excerpts might be useful to both writers and teachers. In this case, I shared the original inspiration for the poem plus 3 or 4 drafts.)
Mr. Linky is rounding us up today, so please fill out the doohickey below to both leave your link and to check out all the other links you can explore. Thanks for being part of Poetry Friday, and I look forward to reading all of your posts throughout the weekend!
