“For every line of poetry I have to think of 10 different ways to say it, to get the exact, best right way,” Nesbitt says. “Computer programming is the same way. You want to write code that is elegant, functional and concise and does what you want to do in the best possible way.” More . . .

Now it's your turn. Write your own poem. Have fun, I did.

Don't forget to share your poems with family and friends. And don't forget to edit, edit, edit.

To read a few of Max's poems, check out The Land of Graws.


Next week's topic: 
End-Rhyme on an Action Word

What poetry question would you like answered? Point of View? Rhyme? Something of your choice? Student questions are also welcome. Your comments below would be greatly appreciated.

Bye for now and see you soon.

Have a great writing day.

Love writing, but love editing more.
