writing poems, tweaking poems

I'm back into writing the last few poems for my next collection- due out in August... I love the fragments that I find in my notebooks- it gives me a structure and a momentum to come back a year, two years, a month later and push through to the end.

But of course I've got to be writing snatches of lines down in the first place and I'm just not doing this enough lately.  I aim to change this...the last few lines I wrote were about the cricket plague after all the wet- and the note books become a diary for me to enter again that moment, that feeling- then why aren't I writing in it regularly????

I know that collections of poems are built this way...(well for me they are)
So get writing Lorraine...

I know what you mean. It's great reading back on what you thought a while back. It gives you time to bring other thoughts along with them

Oh yes I have been doing the same with my drawing - and I miss it and hate it at the same time - I think I am afraid that I wont draw what I feel or I wont like what I feel from that drawing... any how I am pleased to say I got the pencils out tonight and produced a goregous energic little girl
