Poetic Reflections Week 6 on Ava

Tell us about yourself.          

My name is Ava. I love to write, read, dance and learn. I live in the United States of America. I long to be at least bilingual. Right now I am working on French.

Tell me about your blog, the name, what does it mean to you?

My blog verseinanutshell:

is purely poetry site where I write of prompts and just to some of my personal aspirations and dreams.

When have you started blogging?

I first started blogging March 2011, when I started out writing to the prompts given at

Your first poem? Remember?

Actually no. I remember me first blog poetry post on Verse in a Nutshell, but when I write something, it is almost like I pull out of my mind and never remember it unless I read it. It does not make sense, but at least is was written down. 

What are your writing inspirations?

My inspirations are mainly nature, whether it be the outside kind of nature or human nature. Also I write bout that I have strong feelings about. I feel as though it brings a emotional truth to the poem.

When did you start writing poetry? Do you write fiction as well?

I probably started at about 7 or 8. I have written fiction before, but I do not enjoy it as much as I do with poetry. 

Do you have a favorite author or poet?             

My favorite poet is William Blake, I find his work has a very emotional feel. 

Favorite quote?

Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once.
-Lillian Dickson

Why do you wish to get involved with Jingle Poetry Community? How Do you feel so far?

I wanted to get involved because I am always eager to help. I loved posting for the Poetry potluck/picnic and reading everybody else's work. It is still very fun to see how everyone's pieces come together. 

Any advice to poets who wish to blog or write poetry?

I know this is going to sound like something you've heard about a million times before. Those three tried-and-true words Never give up work in every circumstance! Also the most important two words: Have fun!
