Today the Utah Poet Laureate, Lance Larsen, is coming to speak to my class. He also happens to be the keynote speaker at WIFYR this year. I am excited to hear what he has to say. Here is an interview and a few of his poems for a little inspirational motivation as you work. I especially love his answer about what he loves most about writing:
The invisible fuse it lights within and never knowing exactly where it will lead. Anne Sexton said that “God is in the typewriter keys.” I like that. The sensation of the known world colliding with the unknown can become quite addictive.
I hope this will be helpful in getting your creative juices going if you’re stuck, or if you’re not stuck, just a nice little poetic break.
