This month, April, being poetry month we are working on our words. *last year we did weekly poetry projects*
Using an exercise from Frances Mayes, The Discovery of Poetry: A Field Guide to Reading and Writing Poetry (found via this post) we flipped through dictionaries and wrote down words that caught our eye. Eldest son and I work on our writing several times a week together and so changing things up was fun. The Dictionary of Etymology was an eye opening experience for him. Words change?!
