The third meeting is due today.
In the email circular our leader suggested that there would be less projects and more fun in the classes.
This time I am way behind with my homeworks. We had like 4/5 tasks and I'm finished with 2.
One of them was to revise one (or one part of) my previous work.
I have two ongoing projects (wips). One is Halo, the other one is called Copper Moon. I have not contributed a single line to the latter in more than a year. Do you think it means I will never ever finish it? I don't think so. I want to finish Halo first, you know.
So, since none of my longer-sized wips are ready I re-composed a poem instead.
It is a simple 8-line paganistic poem.
I adjusted the number of syllables so as to have the same length of lines, removed 2 cliches and 1 inappropriate word. I chose more suitable words and expressions. Also I changed 1 word to avoid unnecessary repetition.
This poem is written in Hungarian.
I usually do this revision as a habit, you know.
Now the strange thing was to do it deliberately and with defined methods.
I tend to write impulsively, which sometimes results in quite a flow of words, sometimes with not a word at all for weeks. I assume this is not the right way, but I find it hard to manage and control my inspiration. I don't even know if any control is possible.
Whenever I'm finished with something I usually check the thing over to remove and unwanted repetitions, cliches, misused words, inappropriate subjects and objects, verb usage, grammar and so on.
I do it impusively, too -
How your writing's going?
