So I’m trying to blog at least once everyday. Aside from making the bloga little more interesting to read, and also because I’m trying to give myself more of a routine. I have checklists of certain things I want to make sure I do every day.
Usually I have an update for Project 200 or the Discworldathon, or some other randomness to blog about. For days that I don’t, I have a list of blog memes/challenges and things. This is the first one.
10 Days of Haikus.
A haiku is a Japanese form of poetry characterised most famously by its structure of 3 lines and 17 vowels. The first line has 5 vowels, the second line has 7 vowels and the third line has 5 vowels. They’re short and succinct, but that does NOT make them easy to write. I’m going to attempt to write one a day for the next 10 days.
An extra challenge is that I haven’t actually written any poetry in years. I’ve had writers’ block for a good 5 years at least. So wish me luck.
Here’s haiku number one:
Sweet potato pie
A crazy mess to create
Delicious to taste
