Laura's Creative Writing Homework

I wrote a button poem earlier and I had it workshopped. My class said most of the energy and quirkiness was on top and there was not much to be discovered as you read it, so I edited it. They suggested I give the button character more personality. I just wanted some feedback. Thanks!

I liked your add-ons. I like Herald, and I understand why he wanted to leave. hehe

Ahaha, I really liked this. Very orgiinal.

Very good. I like how you have to fish the lemon seeds out of his tea. So weird.

Btw, I don't mean to be annoying, but you and Tina are the worst post title-ers ever. "Laura's Creative Writing Homework"?? Again? Your brain wasn't working after you wrote such an interesting poem? Haha! Again, sorry to be a blog nazi.

Very cute.

Um, Herald might have stuck around, though, if you could come up with some different discussion topics.

Laura said...

But my creative writing homework is like my own recurring post so so so I titled them all the same. :[

You can change it if you want.

Tara said...

That's what's labels are for, geek. =p

Laura said...

My professor basically told me I should cut out half my poem. Lol

Tina said...

I resent your comment, Tara! Why must you suck me into your web of hatred and negativity!

That's very poignant. Sad. And what I love about it is, you believe it's about the button, it's not just one of those, "oh, well, the button signifies some dude or chick to which the heart of the speaker has gone out, only to be lost to the sidewalk behind, heartstrings trailing loose, unattached, useless..."

No. This poem is ABOUT THE BUTTON and you LOVED THAT BUTTON!

I can't type anymore. I hope you will be okay. Please persevere, and write more poems about the button. Or another button.

Sometimes you have to just...move on.
