The Young Writers Thread (aged 10-15)

Recommended Posts

It was! It took me ages, actually. :D We're going to practice it on Tuesday, but it probably won't be performed for a few weeks yet.

There's only four people in our group, so the casting will be hard.

 

God Luck with it, and let us know how you get on.

Hi again. I've had a sort of writer's block for a while so I haven't been writing, but today I decided to try making a poem.. about writer's block. Obviously, it's not very good, but hopefully I'll get out of this slump. :rolleyes:

 

Writer's Block

by Polkadotacne, age 11

 

I sit alone.

Forgotten, in the midst of my despair.

Pencil poised in hand, or fingers on keyboard;

No hope, just blank staring.

 

Take me away from this ordinary, bleak place.

Long ago, I rode on rainbows and painted

My own fairytale.

Now the swirling pot of ideas is gone.

 

Show me the words, and I’ll write them.

Show me the tears, and I’ll cry them.

But there is nothing. Not the breeze,

Not the taste, not the rush.

 

Just me

Just me, just me.

I am so inadequate for my task.

Write a poem, they said.

 

And I’ve never imagined my imagination

Until it’s gone.

I like the post 17 one. Thats right up my street is that.

Actually 18 is a goody too, very interesting.

 

I dont usually go in for poetry because I cant do it, and my "Ode to an orange" failed after I realised that nothing rhymes with the word Orange, but my attention was drawn to this thread and.. what can I say? I like poetry like that.

It didn't get done at drama group in the end :(

 

2 of the actors dropped out at the last minute, and the term ended, then they went on to a new play for the next term. They might do it at the end of this term though.

She must have worked tremendously hard on all that narrative.
