A Marriage of Poetry & Prose

One of my Rockin' Blogs listed in the sidebar is Amy Sue Nathan's. She had a great post yesterday which the cyber gremlins tried to gum up, but Amy, being the smart writerly woman she is, figured out how to untangle the wonky coding. Go read her AN ASPIRING AUTHOR'S POEM. It's fun and funny, but also carries quite good advice for writers. (And tell her I sent ya!)
Here's a little taste:

I read a book I didn’t like,
gave it to a writer-friend,
She didn’t like it either,
neither made it to the end.
We both enjoyed the prologue,
then it fell apart...

Don't forget to enter Gumbo Writer's photo caption contest. [Details in yesterday's post.]

I'm excited about my stepdaughter and family coming to visit today! They're an Army family and have been stationed all over the place, so it's great to have them back in good ol' Louisiana again. Nana's gonna squeeze five sets of cheeks while they're here for the boys to attend an LSU football camp. Can you imagine how exciting that must be for young 'uns?

Now, you go and have yourself a great day and weekend.

There's going to be some mighty happy boys visiting you! Hope you and family have a blast! Of course, I'm waiting on the pics!

Jessica said...

Thanks again Angie, I'm just so thrilled you like my lil poem.

And now - you have family bizness to 'tend to!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Donna, two boys and a wee girlie. Got my camera charged. :)

Thanks, Jessica. I enjoyed Amy's prosey poem too.

Will do, Terri.

Carol, kids do love their sports. I wonder if it's such a rite of passage in other areas of the country?

Got the pots going with some pasta salad and a crock pot roast, Amy. :)

TTWC, I've missed ya. Hope all's well and you're making time to write.

Thank you, Melissa.

BJ, I am!

You're so right, Anita. I'm in awe of families who make these sacrifices, especially over decades. :)

Will do, Kat.

It sure is, Jenni girl!

I grew up in Baton Rouge although I'm in California now. Your blog sure makes me homesick. But I'll be coming back.
