Sadly my Writing 201/Poetry class has come to and end. I had a blast with this class and learned more than I expected to. It was such a great experience for me that well….I had to write about it! 😉
Before the class started, I was nervous because, I had no idea if I could write a poem on demand from a prompt. I surprised myself by happily and ‘promptly’ finishing my assignments each day.
I was excited to study the different types of forms and devices. I am looking forward to exploring each one thoroughly. I never knew there were so many! I was equally happy to know that some of the rules with forms could be bent!
I identified with so many kind and talented people. I’ve enjoyed reading works of others, and discovered how every one has their own style. I was touched by the support of my peers, and appreciated their comments. I am elated to now be connected with several poets/blogs/writers.
This class forced me to have the habit to sit and write each day. This was a break through for me; because I have not let myself before. It was a very important lesson. I now know it’s possible to make my writing/blogging a priority.
Probably the most important thing I walked away with, was a tiny flicker of self confidence. I’ve grown as a person, and as a writer. It feels good to allow myself to explore my own abilities as a poet/writer. I am looking forward to the journey.
I am truly grateful for this experience and all that I have learned.
From the bottom of my heart:
!!!!!THANK YOU WRITING 201/POETRY!!!!
