Write a poem about feeling nervous. Focus on the little habits/movements/mannerisms to convey the feeling of nervousness.
Leaving soon for Kahbang Music Festival in Bangor, Maine. Ooohhhh maybe i’ll see Stephen King!
Write a poem about the process of making a meal or the steps taken to get the ingredient. Examples: the dirty skins of beets gently peeling off as they float in boiling water, pulling beets from a garden and gathering them in a bowl, etc.
Write a poem where the feeling of being “sticky” is a metaphor for something greater.
Write a poem or scene that involves two people conversing over dinner. Use the different meals/how each person feels about their meal to serve as a metaphor for how they really feel about each other.
After you’ve applied I just got an internship in the web editorial department at a Conde Nast publication. My greatest advice is BE PERSISTENT. As my mom always says, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease,” and it’s true! Don’t think you are being annoying by sending lots of e-mails or following up one too many times. If anything, this shows your desire, passion,...
So I’ve been in Maine for almost a week now with the family and I am going to be here for another week. Maine for two weeks? Sounded boring at first—that was, until I set an intention for my time here. I vowed I would spend my time focusing on writing, exercising, reading, and just soaking myself in my own little world of creativity. Even more importantly, I didn’t tell...
Hint for Hummus

Want In? Results: Best Margaritas
scoopst: Margaritas, anyone? On Monday, we told you how we’ve been craving this delicious Mexican drink, preferably paired with chips and guacamole, or a few fish tacos, enjoyed from a shady outdoor patio. We should probably just buy a plane ticket to Mexico, but, in the interim, we’d like to sip a quality margarita - none of that plastic bottle tequila and margarita mix, thank you very much....
The Dutch Epicure in Litchfield, CT, is an amazing find. Nestled in the hills of Litchfield among the wineries, abundant farms, and rolling pastures, it serves up some unique and delicious pastries. You may not be a Connecticutian but you can still embrace the lovely tastes of these sweet treats. Hoefjes or chocolate dipped “hooves”: Soft, chewy macaroons dipped in rich dark...
You all should read Stephen King’s “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft.” It is not only inspiring but honest and to the point—he says several times that he is going to filter out all the bullshit—or something along those lines—and just tell us the most important things. One important thing he says is, “Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us...
We stopped for a night at a Hampton Inn, Schenectady, a town you couldn’t pronounce. After we checked in, smoked our cigarettes, ordered pastries at the Italian bakery, we went back to the room—too big for us with an extra queen sized bed. The bath was just for one but we could be that way as I lay my body on yours, wet, my head, to the side, on your chest, chin resting on your bicep. ...
