Recipe for Writing!

Didactic poetry is a type of poetry that provides instruction for knowledge or to teach.

Writing Recipe

Read all you can
This will change your writing craft,
Additions, subtractions through draft

Imagine the incredible
But believable characters and scheme
Thought up in unlikely places or a dream

Cut out the nonsense that stalls
Your story, and stops it from rising.
It’s an important aspect when advising.

Show the reader
And balance it with tell, so they can imagine
A harrowing man, or the last standing dragon

Love your story
The writing, setting, the whole caboodle
Then go celebrate and eat a strudel.

  1. The advice to love your story matters so much. Since I've been working on shorter pieces again, it's getting easier to love the process like I used to so long ago.
