Hi Mr. Raisdana,
I am sitting here and sitting here racking my brain with this poem..In my mind i know how i could write this story, but i cannot get it from my head to the screen without being unhappy with it.I dont think i am going to be able to have my draft done for tomorrow (i also didnt get home till very late tonight) But may i please talk to you tomorrow and discuss as to how i can 'make' this poem.I was hoping poetry would come a little more naturally to me, as i enjoy this unit.. just struggling at the moment.Really sorrythanks
Here is my response:
Mr. RJust bring what you have and we can workshop in class. This is what poetry is about. It can be hard and that is okay. It doesn't always come easily, even for the pros. It takes time, blood, sweat and tears. You are, after all, finding a way to reveal your soul and paint the world in a way no one has ever seen before. This shouldn't be easy.Hack away at it and we will get there.....thanks for sending me the email. At least I can see that this poem is on your mind and that matters. It is in you and wants to come out, we just need to find a way to let it out.
