Learning to Write

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “adverb.” Start your post with any adverb and just run with it. Have fun!


Clearly words I have avoided
Are the required content for this post
And yet I understandably shiver
As I am trying to learn
The art of writing well
Those -ly words that add to the verb
Require something stronger
To replace their weak use
Or so I am taught
Desperately searching for strength
Words that do not need
These additional descriptions
To make the picture clear
I’ll constantly try to improve my skill
But sometimes I’ll blatantly break
These rules that I am learning
To experiment all for myself
Instead of believing
The freely shared advice
Of the knowledgeable
Who have boldly ventured before me
