Hello again, it's wednesday. The days have been going by so fast! I found this exercise on Huffington Post. I think it's super creative and really fun. I suck in the poem department so I love any excuse to hone in on those skills and sharpen them.
You have to be at home, or near a bookcase for this one. Pick the seventh book from the left (or right, it doesn't really matter). Open up to page seven. Find the seventh sentence and write it down. Use that sentence to start the poem and branch off from there!
Here, I did it with A Game of Thrones by George R Martin...
"Will made no sound as he climbed"
Up the tree he went
To the tippy top
Wanting to see the world
through a new set of eyes
The sky was saphire
the sun shining bright
Beautiful was the only word
he could come up with
At a time like this
with the world at his finger tips
he wished he had someone
to share it with
Loneliness washed over him
a sense of regret filling his every bone
Oh, how he wanted someone

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
