Snippet Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by my fabulous friend Samantha from Reed’s Reads and Reviews. It works like this;
- You share a snippet of your current work in progress or whatever else you are working on. A scene, dialogue, a whole chapter, a poem – anything goes
- Link your Snippet Sunday back at Samantha’s, and we can watch the world burn in our amazingness together
- Ta da! Snippet Sunday complete
The challenge we were given by our teacher’s one English class was to write a poem based off the William Wordsworth Lucy poems. We were given all the words, and rearranged them however we wanted to.
