You Just Wait: Powerpack Poem 1 - Today I Am

Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong have done it again! Their newest book, You Just Wait - A Poetry Friday Power Book is inspiring - so inspiring that reading it has made me excited to participate in the exercises and encourage you to do the same. Over the next several weeks, in random intervals, I will be responding to the writing prompts with a poem in the style detailed in the book. I highly recommend this book for young writers (and writers who are young at heart ;).

  3. I have resisted, although I know it's terrific. I have so many books about poetry and teaching, but you've convinced me, Bridget. This is great, reflecting on your running!
