Final Post?

     Seeing as this is the end of the semester, this may be the end of the blog. And then again, it might not be. Frankly, I'm pretty surprised that this marks the 22nd post I've shared on a public blog.

                                                           What am I working on?

     I'm attempting to write poetry. My poems usually end up being nature-related; I guess it's the easiest thing for me to think poetically about. But, even then, I still have difficulty writing a full poem, long or short, without first spending an enormous amount of time thinking it all out. I keep determinedly sitting down with my notebook and pencil, staring hard at the blank lined paper as though willing it to sprout a sonnet. This method often proves to be fruitless.

     As I've mentioned before, I have a few titles for poems, but the words just haven't arrived yet. It's slightly problematic.

                                                  How do I feel about the process?

Tired. Although I sometimes write out just one line that feels perfect, and it gives me enough motivation to keep trying (I think that was a life-lesson right there).

Total word count: No clue.

Well, that's it for today and possibly for the year. However, as an English major, I really don't intend to stop writing altogether any time soon.

Thank you for coming - exit to you're left.


  1. I hope you keep posting from time to time... but if not, at least keep on writing creatively. (Sometimes we English majors forget to do that because we get so caught up writing literary analysis.)
