New Write Stuff contribution
One thing I have noticed about modern writers is their long blocks of boring prose. Although, this is not exclusive to our modern era. (James Fenimore Cooper wrote volumes of boring prose.) I suspect modern writers are enamored with the nice arrangement of text provided by computer software or blog software. It "looks" publishable or published and therefore must be good. Hah! Typists can not be writers. Bloggers can not be writers. But writers may be typists and/or bloggers. But I digress.
A novel writing professor once told me that less is more. So, I drafted a poem based on the idea of luck, fate, destiny--posted here
. It started out as a 12-line poem. Now it is four lines. It is a novel in four lines. What do you think?
