Thank you to the Two Writing Teachers
for hosting the
Tuesday Slice of Life at Two Writing Teachers.
The weekend was filled with fibs (poetic Fibs)! With it being National Poetry Month and all, I had to share the wonderful story of how all of the Fibs began.
I waded slowly into my twitter stream after waking up in the middle of the night. I saw this tweet:
Writing a (@gregpincus) fib because I couldn't resist after reading a #PoetryFriday post that shared the #howto link https://t.co/YtgGpWtxGh— Kathryn Apel (@KatApel) April 10, 2016
I am always interested in learning more about poetry so I clicked on the link that took me to Greg Pincus' blog post on "How to Write a Fib!" I thought writing Fibs is an interesting and fun way to pack a big punch in a few words. It's basically following a Fibonacci sequence of zero, a 1 syllable word, another 1 syllable word, 2 syllables, 3 syllables, 5 syllables and 8 syllables. I decided to give it a go and then wrote a Fib about tweeting and when Kathryn Apel shared her Fib.
@AmyJoRudd @gregpincus Oh. Fun!— Kathryn Apel (@KatApel) April 10, 2016

@KatApel @gregpincus fun! A Tweet Fib 😀— Amy Rudd (@AmyJoRudd) April 10, 2016
With a friend
Chirping words, conveying meaning
Then Kathryn tweeted a response back to me...
Then some tweets later, Greg Pincus got in on the action...
Our tweets of poetic fibbery continued with these:@KatApel @AmyJoRudd— Greg Pincus (@gregpincus) April 11, 2016
When the muse calls out
We write in the wee hours of night.
