napowrimo #15, or a sestina in first draft
REMOVED FOR EDITING.
We are working on sestinas for class this week, and here is my first attempt. A NaNoWriMo-style attempt. This doesn’t quite get down to anything. Boo. Maybe I can amp it up before class on Monday. One thing I like about attempting the sestina is that it is impossible to predict, as you write, where it’s going to take itself. (I like the surprise of it.) One thing I do not like about attempting the sestina is that if you’ve made a wrong turn, it’s hard to recover.
