Adage A Day

Folder: 
Vintage Words

  .

It is work, writing.
Write, edit, rewrite
re-edit. Start
over. Keep what works,
cross off what
doesn't.
  
Write it the way it
comes first, then rework
it. Try a different
motif, add a motif, erase
both motifs. Forget
motifs.
.
Start another verse
keeping true to the first
two verses and the title.
Then reword it, scratch
the middle, enhance
the end, use adjectives
and better,stronger
verbs. 

  

Yeah, it's your
poem, you can change
the title. Work it!

u don't need a marketing

u don't need a marketing specialist to make an adage stick.  just like advertising, the trick is endless repetition ;) when u hear one of ur friends say it, its official :) i use so many in conversation i don't even remember which ones are mine anymore.  i THINK i invented "you never know what goes on behind closed doors." (for when people say "but they seemed so happy before they got divorced, etc)

Eavesdropping

as in dropping the eaves to see what's happening next door. I think you can go to jail for that though. They never caught my grandmother at it, thank goodness. It would have been embarrassing. Repetition eh? hmmmmm . . . :D slc
