August Round Up
Even though August is not yet over, a little over half way, here is a quick creative roundup.
Words have been in short supply due to work commitments (there’s always marking to do when you’re an English teacher) so in the interim, a bit of blackout poetry can fill the creative need.
Counting Words. Edging ever so close to the end of this novella. I added a little over 600 words in August (and read hundreds and hundreds more in student essays).
The “blank” canvas.
The finished version of the “blank” canvas. Not totally happy with the results but it was an experiment. Needs more experimenting.
I haven’t drawn in a while and took an afternoon to play around with pencils and pens.
Great reminder! I love blackout poetry, but haven’t done any for a while. YOu may have inspired me! 🙂 xx
They’re always fun to come back to when you’re short on time or just for mucking around, looking for patterns in language and the rhythm in words.
