Saturday Good Reads

I must have writing on the brain, because several of the good reads below are about writing.

Prose

When Everything Flows” by Melissa at All the Words.

Writerly Rules” by Tom Vowler at How to Write a Novel.

Why the World Needs You” by Mick Silva at Your Writer’s Group.

10 Ways to Write Skinny Sentences” by K.M. Weilland at Word Play, and her “The Myth of Being in the Zone” at The Master’s Artist.

Lost and Found and Lost” by John Blasé at Dirty Shame.

NightandILoveYou” by Billy Coffey in his Monday post at Hey Look, A Chicken! And then he posted “This Lump of Clay” at The Master’s Artist.

Why Doctrine is Only Half the Message” by Don Miller.

Nature, Alone” by Brian Volck at The Image Journal.

Cool Waters, Common Ground and the One That Didn’t Get Away” by Jeff Jordan.

The Poetry of Illness” by Maureen Doallas.


Poetry

The Hunger,” by Pete Marshall

Things” by Justinian at Delight and Glory and Oddity and Light.

Stay” by John Blasé at Dirty Shame.

The house shook” by Nancy Rosback at Poems and Prayers. And then Nancy wrote three poems inspired by Part 1 of The Mystery of the Cross.

"Song 23" by Fred Sprinkle at I Force It to Rhyme. It sounds familiar, and it is – and it’s not.

This regular Saturday post is about the articles, essays and poems written by others. But if you’re into monster poetry, read the article “Controlling Our Monsters in Verse” by Marcus Goodyear at High Calling Blogs. One of mine is cited and discussed – but the article links to 26 poems written in the past week from monsters’ perspectives – and they are wonderful.

I really enjoyed Nancy's poems for "The Mystery of the Cross".

Have a great weekend.
