We all need to warm up before we sing, exercise or write! We will be sharing ideas here to help you “work out” your writing muscles. Take a deep cleansing breath and stretch! For more writing inspiration share your stretches with us. We will be happy to post them.
Haiku and Tanka are poetry forms that use a certain number of syllables per line. Try your hand at writing a poem using your phone number.
Write your phone number vertically in a column. Each number suggests the number of syllables per line. Zeroes equal 10 syllables. Title your poem. Here is an example.
2 Heat wave
6 candy coated ice cream
5 sticky faced baby
3 wants a hug
4 kisses so sweet
7 is better with chocolate
