My mind is an ocean blue

Ask me anything   Submit   Wanderer at heart with a nearly useless Art History degree. I like music, everything from folk to metal depending on my mood, camping, hiking, and all things cozy. Some days I even consider myself a poet.

"The avoidant student thinks she has nothing to write about because no one is more boring and dull than she. She writes poems with flat language to mirror her supposedly flat subjects. In extreme cases, she may retreat into fantasy, writing genre-inspired poems populated by vampires or zombies, or simply stall out and refuse to write entirely. Then there’s the student who believes his life is endlessly fascinating. He presents a magnum opus on the subject of his recent breakup. Often this student’s work is so personally coded that it is entirely opaque to readers. In a workshop setting, such poems can be frustrating for everyone involved. To greet these efforts by simply reiterating “write what you know” will seem futile and tone-deaf to these students. They believed, they tried, and it didn’t work. But what is the alternative? Rather than preaching “write what you know,” consider persona poetry. It seems paradoxical, but writing as someone else—exploring what you don’t know—can prove an excellent method of coming to know yourself as a writer. Using a persona allows a student to temporarily shake loose her devotion to portraying her “true” self and be someone else for a while."

Teaching the Persona Poem by Rebecca Hazelton

This article offers a solid basic overview of persona poems and addresses the same problem I have tried to identify here.

Don’t write about yourself. Embrace artifice. Release the shackles of ego and self-awareness.

I’m still reconciling today’s language and its advancements. For example, in my era, a ‘toilet’ was a ‘vanity cabinet’, ‘Intercourse’ meant simply ‘social conversation’, ‘awful’ meant ‘awe-inspiring’

I cannot wait for the season 2 and also wish I could have gone to the san diego comic con.

This is too cute!

I’d love to know more about the tattoos Robin Mcleavy’s character sports on Hell on Wheels ( obviously other than the back story provided by the show). If anyone knows anything message me here : http://tristessa117.tumblr.com/
