Not Writing a Book in my Head – Day 13

Capturing snippets of life is best done by using the senses to the greatest extent possible in the observation of ordinary life. The writable about writing prompts today are about an ordinary object – a sofa. How far does your imagination take you when you look at your current couch or remember past couches? Enjoy Avery’s vision and Heaney’s lilt to expand your world view.  National Poetry Month is almost half over. As you write today, think about your goals this month. How many pages did you want to write?  How many useable fragments have you gathered?  Are poems emerging?

Listen to Seamus Heaney read

Writable About - the Couch - a look--a listen.

Writable About – the Couch – a look–a listen.

About Taylor Collins

Taylor writes in fragments - journals incessantly – the sea a recurring theme. She blogs and works on three writing projects at the moment. She was selected to read a twitter poem, written during National Poetry month, for the “Tell Me More” NPR program in 2011. A day diary was selected for publication in Water Cooler Diaries published in 2008 (De Capo Press). She recently completed a small chapbook, a 12-part poem entitled Flame. Taylor receives “real” rejection letters now – a sure sign her work is being read. She paints and writes in her studio/gallery -- Parke Green Galleries located on the site where the US Constitution was first ratified. She spends time thinking when deep thoughts surface. Taylor leads a rather dry life on the ocean she's tossed about on. Be sure to visit her if you're ever in the state that started our nation. Cheers!
