I have learned is that stepping out of your genre can only add richness to your writer’s voice.
I don’t get poetry, I don’t understand poetry I never actually read or enjoyed it. But when I started getting comments from readers who read my short stories and thought they were poems, I said to myself ” maybe you should do this on purpose “
What I discovered was writing poems helped me learn to express the visual aspects of my stories and it helped me keep on track and focused when I wrote short stories or flash fiction.
So give this clip a view- of course I’d suggest watching the film as well. But what I wanted to share was the wealth of information you will find here.
