Write (JustJoJan)

Inspired by and written for JustJoJan – thank you, Linda

Definition: Write – v. mark (letters, words, or other symbols) on a surface, typically paper, with a pen, pencil, or similar implement.

Synonyms: put down, note, compose, address, create, draft, pen, scrawl, rewrite, scribble, ink, jot

And I caught up after a delayed start, and here I am, 31 Jan, writing the first draft to the final prompt for JustJoJan – of course, it must go for editing before it sees the screen let alone gets posted

Form: Haiku

outline – jot down notes
pen and ink of rough ideas
something or nothing
pen roughing outlines
out of order but in sync
scribbles in first draft
edit and rewrite
read through and edit some more
until final draft
check meter and form
count syllables to be sure
are rhyme patterns, right?
syntax and vocab
and there in ink it is done
now ready to type
they think it’s easy
composing words into verse
it’s bloody hard work
