One-Lines are Writing Too

by Courtney Brommer
(Wisconsin, USA)

I try to write songs, but I'm not good with melody, so I've resigned to writing poetry. This works well for me, but sometimes I can't think of a whole poem to write. I'll think of one line that sounds really great, but nothing to go with it. To counteract that little flaw, I carry around a piece of paper, and a pen AT ALL TIMES. Sometimes a stroke of brilliance will pop into my head, and I'll be able to rattle off a poem. As for the one-liner problem, I write all of them down, and over a couple of weeks, I asses what I've added up. From there, I usually accomplish a semi-decent poem.

Hope this works for you as well.
