The JUST WRITE SOMETHING Challenge | Day 8
Once I start editing and refining my writing, I work best without music. Since grammar is my ultimate weakness, I can't have any distractions while I'm trying to spot the comma splices or the moment where my voice accidentally shifted.
Now I want to hear from you! Do you listen to music while you write? If so, what type of music do you listen to? Does it change with each genre or style of writing?
Carving a Pumpkin
A knife, sharp with a serrated edge
stabs the space between the ribs
removing a wedge
are tossed out until nothing remains
The knife carves out a triangle
to see the light
pumpkin strings still dangle
Line by line
tooth by tooth
The pumpkin shines.
* I broke my no lyrics rule yesterday when I wrote this poem. I wanted to play around with poetry since it's not my strong suit, so who better to turn to for inspiration then Lin-Manuel Miranda. I had the Hamilton soundtrack playing in the background. Man, his work is incredible.
Today's writing prompt:
Do you prefer the new e-books or printed hardback or paperback books? Why? What are the benefits of each?
