A Poet’s Decade

At the time of writing this, there are about 5 hours left in the decade. I know that technically, the decade is from 2010-2020, but everyone seems to be writing end-of-the-decade posts, and since I haven’t blogged in a while, I figure better now than never.

At the beginning of the decade, I was still in college, publishing a poem or two each year in the university’s literary magazine. I may have h

Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Fanu
“You have heard, no doubt, of the appalling superstition that prevails in Upper and Lower Styria, in Moravia, Silesia, in Turkish Serbia, in Poland, even in Russia; the superstition, so we must call it, of the Vampire.”
J. Sheridan Le Fanu

“Dialogue is a little bit jazz, a little bit hand-to-hand combat.”
Chuck Wendig, 250 Things You Should Know About Writing

Kristy Bowen
“I am waiting to write the poem that is something like a dance movie, the ones populated by fair haired ballerinas with just a little bit of singe to their tulle, not quite as dark as the Natalie Portman one, but girls woefully misunderstood by their parents or harboring dead mothers and sad pasts.”
Kristy Bowen, I Hate You James Franco

Karen Armstrong
“If professional religious leaders cannot instruct us in mythological lore, our artists and creative writers can perhaps step into this priestly role and bring fresh insight to our lost and damaged role.”
Karen Armstrong, A Short History of Myth

Karen Armstrong
“If it is written and read with serious attention, a novel, like a myth or any great work of art, can become an initiation that helps us to make a painful rite of passage from one phase of life, one state of mind, to another. A novel, like a myth, teaches us to see the world differently; it shows us how to look into our own hearts and to see our world from a perspective that goes beyond our own self-interest.”
Karen Armstrong, A Short History of Myth
