~~Story Time With Dekreel~~

I’m not very huge on writing.

I’ve written enough, and hung out with other writers enough, to understand the pain of writer’s block, the despair of killing a character you like, the frustration of editing, etc., but I’ve never gotten far enough to experience most of these things myself.

Today, I came closer to being a passionate writer than I have in a long time.

Pastries, Coffee, and Improvision

Welp, it’s Friday night. The deadline is approaching fast, and I have nothing to show for it in the morning. So today, I’m going to improvise. I have no clue where this post will take me. It might end up getting philosophical, serious, silly, all of the above. . . who knows.

Why am I bringing this up? Well, because classics are cool, of course! But also because. . . .

It’s a party!

Book Binder Poetry {Dekreel Edition}

I’ve always been a big fan of poetry and beautiful prose in general, and Evelyn’s blog post on what she calls “book binder” poetry is a great example of raw literary aesthetic. I knew immediately that I wanted to follow suit (besides, it looked like SO MUCH FUN.) So I stole drew inspiration from her idea, grabbed a couple armfuls of books from various shelves and tried my hand at composing book binder poetry of my own.

If y’all haven’t read her post on this unique genre of poetry, I highly suggest checking it out. She’s an amazing poet and she did a wonderful job. šŸ™‚

Let’s get started! *rubs paws*
