Getting back on track
Last week was a whirlwind of emotions and various challenges, and unfortunately not of the written variety. However I am now inundated with work, applications and of course writing. I have a couple of deadlines to meet and various forms to fill out but I am thrilled to have projects which I can set my mind on, I finally feel as though I am getting back on track with my goals after a small hiccup. And, on top of all of this, I have been setting myself goals to apply for various writing competitions, so far I’ve applied to 3, but hope to apply to many more. I’ll keep you updated on what becomes of this endeavour.
I am also, once again. sticking to my blogging schedule, and today I will reveal this week’s challenge! I wanted to do a poem this week, as they are my favourite and I am in need of some comfort writing. Anyway, the poetic form I will be tackling is the Shadorma, it apparently has Spanish origin and sticks to a strict syllabic form, in a similar way to a haiku. Each stanza consists of 6 lines and follows the pattern of 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllables. I chose the Shadorma as it’s not a form I’m familiar with and I love the chance to experiment.
So that’s all for now, check back in on Friday to read my Shadorma.
