This week’s Ronovan Writes prompt words are ‘Sugar’ and ‘Bitter’.
I’ve decided to take you through my process in writing a haiku for this challenge, if only so that the haiku itself isn’t revealed in the summary on the WordPress reader and then there’s no reason to visit the site, thus robbing me of a possible page view.
So, first thing I do is to open the Syllable Counter website, this saves me having to count up to five or seven myself.
Then I write in the prompt words and stare at them.
After a while, I might try saying the words to myself with a ‘hmmm..’ sound after each one, just in case Mrs Bryntin wanders by and sees me sitting still.
So in this example, it’s “Sugar…. hmmmm…”
Followed by “Bitter… hmmmmm…”
Hopefully you can get the idea from that but you may prefer to add your own little noises.
Perhaps an ‘Ummmm…’ or ‘Errrrrr….’
Anyway, eventually something happens and I think of some more words.
Without brown sugar
Sprinkled over lemon juice
Pancakes too bitter
Pleased with myself, after entering yet another few syllables of wisdom to the pantheon of great syllable order-specific profundities, I copy and paste it here and then press publish.
I am sure many have their own methods but I am yet to be disappointed by the results I get using mine. You might be different. About the method I mean.
There are some who might have thought I don’t take this whole thing seriously. As you can see, I do, so I hope you’re ashamed of yourselves.
That’s it really.
