In preparation, last month I began making collage postcards out of recycled materials. I'd been dissatisfied for several weeks with the poetry I was writing, but I decided to carry on anyway since I'd already made the commitment.
This is the one I sent out for Day One:
|Day One - Left Behind by Linda G Hatton|
|Collage Art by Linda G Hatton|
It's turning out to be quite a challenge for me to come up with a poem I can hand write on the back of a postcard. My hands have gotten so used to typing.
This project and some advice from my wonderful group of writer friends at Wordsmith Studio have helped to pull me out of my writing difficulties. What a relief.
More to come!
