The sonnet was the first poetic form that I experimented with, so it holds a special place in my heart.

Shakespeare clearly loved the sonnet form, as it was the only type of poem that he seemed interested in writing. He wrote so many, he didn’t bother to name them – they got numbers instead.

There are only FOUR things that you need to know about the sonnet form... (For the rest of the article, visit writeratworkng.com)

So you’ve started your story and your momentum is hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh! So high, you may as well be a balloon floating in the air. Your fingers are racing over the keyboard and the ideas are flowing quickly and smoothly.

But soon it takes you double the time to crank out the page and your story begins to feel dull, forced. You’re in the middle of your story and even though you may have an idea of how you want it to end, you have no idea how to get there from where you are.

Does... this sound familiar?

The Pantoum is a form that originated from Malaysia. I like to think of it as a sort of circle, because it begins and ends with the same line. Whatever the journey, you end up back where you started, so it is an interesting form to explore.

So what do you need to know about the Pantoum?

1) Length: it does not adhere to a specific length. So even though it is a strict form, you can make it as long or short as you like! (Much like my Asby). However, the Pantoum is written in q...uatrains – four line stanzas... To read the rest, visit www.writeratworkng.com

I read the passage again, where Mr Rochester and Jane have their tete a tete after the discovery of his secret (I'm trying not to give spoilers, but if you haven't read Jane Eyre yet...really, I dunno...) and it made me teary.

Jane Eyre has always been my favourite novel and it always will be. Jane, I become Jane when I read it. I feel her pain, her hope, her elation, her resolve. I can only imagine how much of herself Charlotte Bronte must have given to create this mag...nificent piece of art.
