I am a writer, editor, writing coach, and consultant. I work in a variety of genres, including poetry, short stories, and creative non-fiction. I also have a couple of novels simmering on back burners. THANK YOU to Nan Macy of Village Books for taking this photo (June 2011).
Obsession? Cobalt blue? Over-reliance on certain prompts? Me? LOL
Hey, I LOVED this older writer’s prompt on Midge Raymond’s website from her guest prompter, Kelli Russell Agodon:
Yes, I used the prompt for my NaPoWriMo Day 13 poem, “Self Portrait with a Box of Mom’s Photos.”
Press on with YOUR writing and YOUR poems! All the best, Andy
Another killer ending, Andy–how do you DO that?
Thanks for the link to Midge Raymond. It’s fun to discover a wealth of prompts to mix and match from.
“Cobalt Blue”–that’s a catchy title for your upcoming chapbook manuscript, don’t you think?
Dear Jennifer, thank you, thank you. I am so grateful for your thoughtful comments and encouragement.
Perhaps the Museum of a Lost Family pieces have struck a chord in
me, and the daily work is paying off, and my poems are getting a
bit better Now, THAT’s an exciting thought!
LOL – upcoming poetry chapbook! You’re so kind. Perhaps “Cobalt Blues”? BTW, my original chapbook manuscript was titled “Grief
as Singing the Cobalt Blues.”
You’re welcome – isn’t that a great website? I need to read
some of Midge Raymond’s work. Forgetting English
sounds good. Kelli Russell Agodon has a series of NaPoWriMo
prompts from 2010 and 2011 on her “Book of Kells” blog.
Thanks again, and with warm regards, Andy
YES: “Singing the Cobalt Blues.” You’re way ahead of me on this, I see.
Will look up Forgetting English and Book of Kells. Thanks!
LOL “Grief as Singing the Cobalt Blues” didn’t seem to have much traction!
I just added Agodon’s Book of Kells to my blogroll. I especially
like Forgetting English as a title!
