While I'm working on a YA novel (WIP) and taking off time to enter my first Script Frenzy,
I was challenged to write a poem a day for National Poetry Month 2011.
I like poetry. Silly stuff. Good stuff. Rhymes and rhythms. Irregular and regular. So, I started (late to the party of course) but decided to blend my interests. et Voila!
A combination of Script Frenzy with National Poetry Month 2011
Script Frenzy Virtual Write-In
At a virtual write-in for my script
My fingers across the keyboard skipped.
The pages mounted, literally ripped
From my mind and to the page they zipped.
I hadn’t meant my first draft to encrypt
But at first read I should be closed-lipped.
Or dare I say, the fluff needs to be chipped
Away so all but the kernel is stripped.
In future, I hope to be better equipped
And someday good champagne will be sipped
When producers, directors, and actors are gripped
By the emotions, the action--the thrill of my script.
