Posts and Preferences

Hello readers!

Since I’m going to be updating this blog bi-weekly, I decided that I should probably lay out what you can begin to expect from me, as far as posts go. One post will probably always be one of three things: a post that features a famous quote by an author I love, followed by me discussing that quote and author; a post in which I present one of my many pieces of creative writing; or a post where I just write about random events/ideas/anecdotes that come up in my life and would make a good blog post. The first two will probably happen more often, but I’d actually really like to know what you would be interested in seeing for that second option. I won’t do that every week, but when I do, would you rather see prose or poetry?

The other weekly post will be dedicated to the prompt my Writing 200 Professor gives us to write about every week, and  – just so y’all know – I’ll try to keep class assignments and discussions limited to that post. I realize that not all of my readers will be my classmates and Professor, so for those of you that aren’t, please bear with me on those posts:) Thanks!

I’d love to get feedback about what you’d prefer to see from me (about the poetry vs. prose thing), so until next time, thanks for reading!

    By the way is H-A-Cooke from d.A.: I think you should post work you really want feedback on. 🙂 We’ll read it and give you ideas.

    I always like to hear poetry, and no one else has said that, so I’ll throw in my support for poetry! What kind do you write?

      Well thank you for your input! I was already planning on posting both, so I’m glad I got support for both 🙂 I write a lot of different kinds of poetry…I’d say most of it would be classified as “emotional” poetry, but I also do some human-nature, narrative, and descriptive poetry too. I’d like to make it clear, though, that WHATEVER I post, I’d very much appreciate critique on! I LOVE critique because I want so very much to improve, so never, never hesitate on giving me critique. 🙂

  5. I’m torn between prose and poetry actually. I enjoy reading poetry from an author I can know, but I also would like to become familiar with process that a writer goes through in working on pieces. I’m gong to have to decide on supporting the prose option, but poetry is a close second. What if you, when posting about poetry or prose, included the inspiration for that piece as well? Give the readers a little bit of history so that they can understand the motivation a little better. Maybe it’ll help people who don’t know where to look for inspiration. Anywho, looking forward to more posts and enjoy this week.

      Thank you for commenting! I’ve gotten votes for both, so I guess I’ll just alternate between the two:) And sure, I can explain the background and inspiration behind each piece. Are you asking just out of curiosity or because you’re looking for inspiration yourself?
