A blog for the book IMPERFECT: a poetry anthology for middle schoolers about mistakes
How can we make the most of useful mistakes and do our best to fix the ones that need fixing? Poetry can help us figure it out.
Love this, Brenda! So true. Perfect poems are usually boring. Surprising poems are my favorites. Congrats!
I was unsure about the colon, so unexpected, but needed. And my agonizing itself made me laugh. I'm glad you like it, too.
Imperfect has also been called creativity.
Agreed. We have to blunder and trip to find ourselves somewhere entirely new.
Love the intro, Brenda. Imperfect poet-an honor well-deserved since perfection is not what we are looking for. Looking forward to seeing your name in print!
Thanks, Carol. Being imperfect is what drives us to create, perhaps.
Lovely, Brenda. There is no limit to the potential of poetry!
