A pretty cool idea -- Lj users write an entry by hand, scan it, and post it up. Here's mine!

I have owned a magnetic poetry set for a while now, but due to a lack of metal surfaces in my room, there was no opportunity to use them. Finally I got tired of staring at it, unopened, so I bought one of those plastic desk protectors and spread out my poetry right on top of my desk. Then the cover went over them, so I lost no workspace! Whenever I can, I take off the protector, play with the poetry, then slip it back on to work.

I am a genius (=

I really love using the magnetic poetry because the limited amounts of conjunctions and articles and verbs (there are about six 'but's but only two 'it's! Wtf?) forces me to think creatively. I use magnetic poetry as, of course, inspiration for poetry, but also like a warm-up before a test or homework. Sometimes I slip a few into my pocket and draw one out at random over the course of the school day, just to see what can come of one word. I recommend magnetic poetry to all writers.

Anyway, this is my first piece of any merit.
