Author has written 32 stories for Life, Love, General, Song, and War.

I've been writing poetry since I was just a little girl in third grade...and I'm almost eighteen now. So that says something, I think. Read and review my poetry, please; I really want to work on improving my abilities by collaborating ideas with others of talent. I do accept anonymous reviews!

Oh, and since some of you guys seem pretty into the pantoum form I've used lately...here are the rules to using this style, as I learned them myself on deviantART. Rules for a pantoum:
- Pantoums are made up of 4 line stanzas. There is no limit to the number of stanzas in the poem.
- The preferred metre for this form is iambic tetrameter (tetrameter refers to 8 syllables or 4 feet)
- The first and last lines of your poem should be the same.
- The first and third lines rhyme with each other, and the second and fourth lines rhyme with each other.
- The second and fourth lines of the first stanza become the first and third lines of the second stanza, and this pattern is repeated throughout the poem.
- You can deviate slighly to make your repetition work better, but it would be fantastic if you stuck to the form.

Yes, I know. The tetrameter thingy with the stressed syllables is a nightmare, and so is the rest of the form, with all its rules...makes it a pain to write. I feel the end products are worth it, though, if you follow through on all the rules. So good luck to all who attempt...please send me a link to your work, if you do. I'd like to read it! :)


My deviantART account was recently stolen, so I will be here more often now. Looking forward to it!
