From the Perspective of a Writer

I love this title. In fact, I love making up titles. Before I start to write a poem, I write the title first. Then, I allow the title to make up the rest of the poem. It’s funny how that happens. I have heard about many writers who find their titles within the work. I believe that is ingenious and creative because they can see the message within before titling the piece.

I kept thinking about titles for poems I want to write. It’s summer vacation for me (I’m a teacher), and this summer I am going to allow my body and mind to heal. I am going to write every day and find solitude in my work; something I have wanted for a long time.

So, my writing journey begins with a list of titles (a list I change frequently), and from those titles, I will create my poetry. I am hoping to plan a poetry night for women of color soon; that means to plan out why I want that event to happen and to line up women of color in the city of Tucson who write poetry and willing to read it in a public setting. I need to find a place to hold the event, and I am hoping it will be something that will be accepted in the community.

The name of the event:

From the Perspective of a Woman.

Sounds like a great poem too!
