How It Works:
EVERY THURSDAY, I will select a list of at least 10 words (sometimes more). I pull these words from a favorite literary piece that has inspired me. Usually I pull these words from another poem. I always provide the title of the piece, as well as the author, unless you want to go read it for yourself.
The idea is to take those 10 words and create a new, unique piece of writing of your own.
I love word lists/wordles because they allow me to use words I don't often use, and those new words encourage fresh concepts and ideas for my poetry.
The Word List for this week is selected from the original, gritty lyrics of Bob Dylan as they appear in his song titled Idiot Wind.
The Word List for this week comes from a poem by Marge Piercy, titled The Air Smelled Dirty.
