So I think I'm finally hitting on something again with my writing. My new focus, a series of ten-word poems or parts (five two-word lines), seems to have caught on something. I'm dropping the "Arts Week" newspaper project for now. I mean, I like the poems that are coming out of it well enough. I'm just not learning a lot from them. They're not carrying me anywhere I haven't already been, and I don't find them especially bewildering (or maybe astonishing). The title I'm using for the new series is "Infinite Formalism," though I'm not sure I like all of the implications of it. Yeah, it's supposed to be a bit ironic and provocative.
