For the nth time, I said for me, “writing is like breathing with words”. But as I read more and more and write more and more, I realize there is so much learning to do to be able to “breathe” better.
As Stephen King said in his awesome book
Confession time: Since November, I have not finished a single book after finishing 60 from January to October 2016. I am on a reading block but I have not stopped reading poetry. I read some works of Maya Angelou, Charles Bukowski, Emily Dickinson and I promise myself I will read more.
Because I want to grow in this word-made field of poetry. I want to write better. I want to breathe better.
Then recently, I received an email about this awesome poetry guide titled The Writer’s Guide to Poetry by Signature, Knopf and Penguin Random House.
In it you’ll find:
- Insights from 11 award-winning poets.
- Advice on how to overcome imposter syndrome.
- 3 classic poems illustrated by artist Nathan Gelgud.
- Anne Lamott on the devils of perfectionism.
- Important tips on “telling it slant.”
- And more.
I will be reading this book this Lenten Break and if you want to get your copy visit here.
Happy reading and writing, my darlings! ❤
