I reviewed only one book last week: The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, which I liked thought I think it's a bit over rated. Nevertheless, I'm heading to the bookstore/library for the next in the series featuring the precocious 11-year-old Flavia, The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag (Flavia De Luce Mystery 2).
The third in the series is already available on Amazon (for pre-order): A Red Herring Without Mustard: A Flavia de Luce Mystery (Flavia De Luce Mysteries) and I'm looking forward to that one too.
I've been reading books but not necessarily reviewing all of them. Finished A Corpse for Yew (A Peggy Lee Garden Mystery), which I loved! Am heading for others in the series.
And now for writing.
I've discovered haibun, a combination of prose interspersed with a few lines of poetry such as haiku. Perfect format for me! This is what I've been looking for to write my memoir!
Am also getting to know other forms of poetry besides the popular haiku, forms such as senryu. Haiku has nature as its subject and is considered serious poetry, while senryu has human foibles as a theme and can be humorous. Both are short three line poems. Tanka are an ancient Japanese poetry form of 31-syllables which I won't tackle as yet.
Question is, should I create a separate blog for poetry? Scroll down to my two or three previous posts to see my first few feeble attempts! You can also join in by following the weekly poetry prompts hosted online by a variety of writer poets!
