A Writer’s Haiku
Writer: a person engaged in writing books, articles, stories, etc., especially as an occupation or profession; an author or journalist.
Haiku: a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons.
A: the first letter of the English alphabet, a vowel.
Since I’m busy with wedding/end-of-school/vacation plans, I’m posting a reused poem I originally submitted for a contest over on Rachelle Gardner’s blog. I didn’t win. Possibly because I stretched the definition of haiku? At least I got the syllables right.
Plot, draft, proof, revise.
Polish, query, pitch, and pray.
