Jenny at readsbyredriverbanks asked me to take part in the Writer’s Blog Tour last weekend, and I’ve finally taken a few minutes to sit down and type up a post. I did a post on the same topic back in May, when the ever-lovely Tricia Drammeh asked me to take part. That time I answered the questions with more of a focus on my fiction writing, but this time I decided to focus a bit more on my poetry.
Why do I write what I do?
I write poetry because it’s something I’ve always enjoyed reading. I remember as a kid I spent a whole afternoon in one of the trees out at my grandparents’ place writing poems about my summer vacation as a school project. I used to really like free verse, and sometimes I still write a bit of it, but I’ve found haiku to be an interesting challenge, and it’s really quite satisfying to be able to cram a world of emotion into 17 syllables.
What am I working on?
I’m still working on…
