If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that after I visited my real estate co-worker/friend C at his new apartment, I made my way to attend my Write On Windsor (WOW) group meeting.
WOW meets at the downtown branch of the Windsor Public Library (WPL). This was only about a block and a half, from C's. How great was that!
Since I hadn't had time to write something new for our group to critique, I supplied each participant with a copy of two (2) of my past blog entries, from here on LwL. These were sent by e-mail to fellow members, but I printed out a few extra copies, in case there were new people in attendance, or who didn't receive a copy, for some reason.
Here is a link to my entry from this past Valentine's day, entitled Happy Valentine's Day!: http://2lynnmc.blogspot.ca/2012/02/happy-valentines-day.html
Why did I provide this LwL entry? Well, for starters, I chose Happy Valentine's Day!, because it was a poem I had written, recently.
Do I write poetry often? No. Although, when I have the urge, I have found myself reflecting and writing poems, from time to time.
It matters not whether or not I am good at writing poetry, what matters is the fact that I am writing anything! As you are probably aware, I love to write. And, since it is a nice change from narrative or personal styles of writing, I decided to provide this for critique.
Here is a link to the second blog entry I supplied each member, entitled The Silent Reverie...
The reason I chose this LwL entry, is two-fold.
Firstly, the beginning of this entry is an example of my writing style, that shows how I normally write an entry. In addition, it shows an example of a song I rewrote the lyrics for, to honour God.
If you've been a reader for a while, you are probably aware that I enjoy rewriting lyrics from secular songs, in order to convert them into praise/worship songs. As I did, with Sarah McLachlin's song Angel...
Before the critiquing discussions, I read my entries. When I reached the part where the song lyrics began, I stopped reading. At this point, I did something different.
I sang the song. Yes, acapella.
It seemed those who were with me, enjoyed my version. One person, who had played piano at the previous meeting, commented that I had perfect pitch.
It was nice hearing this compliment, but truly, I just enjoy singing. Especially, when God is honoured.
Until next time...
