Today’s very exciting (mostly because it’s been so long and I thought any creative part of me had turned to stone) writing was inspired/motivated by a short, free Open University course called Writing what you know. It basically does what it says and helps you to look at ways to write what you know. It’s not overly detailed but it’s worth a quick look if you have a spare hour or so and are looking to spark something creative. The following is very very much a work in progress but I was pleased to have written something and I despite being exhausted I know I won’t sleep easily tonight. Hence the late night blogpost.
I know that inside
Skin, blood gushes like oil.
Dark shadows hide secrets
I know that torture
Wounds, releasing scalding lava.
The body spills stories.
I know that rushing
Relief, peacefully painfully draining.
Slaughterhouse queue carries on.
Constructive criticism would be helpful please.
