Hey guys! I know I haven't been active on here lately and it's mostly because college is killing me.
But I just wanted to share my new blog with you:blackoutpoemaday.tumblr.com/
Here I post "blackout poetry." If you don't know what that is, it's basically taking a page from a book, a paragraph from a magazine, or a newspaper article, and picking out words you like from the passage. Then you black out the rest. You'll see what I mean if you check out the blog.
I've been making these a lot lately and wanted to share them so I decided to make a blog dedicated to all of the blackout poems I've made. I'll be posting one every day so check back!
I was inspired by Austin Kleon. He's one of my favorite authors and wrote the books Steal Like an Artist
and Show Your Work!
He also released a book called Newspaper Blackout,
a huge collection of all of his best blackout poems. He's super awesome and inspiring. I definitely recommend reading his books if you are an artist/writer/anyone that needs some inspiration!
Anyways, I hope you guys have been doing well! Like I said, college is kicking my ass but it's okay. I just haven't had much time to do any of the things I promised I would do for people and I feel terrible. But don't worry, I WILL do them!!!!!!
