Lesson 1 - Basics of Meter
"Life is tons of discipline.  Your first discipline is your vocabulary; then your grammar and your punctuation.  Then, in your exuberance and bounding energy you say you're going to add to that.  Then you add rhyme and meter.  And your delight is in that power."
  - Robert Frost
As Robert Frost is saying, meter and rhyme are not the most important parts of writing.  They are the most intricate when creating poetry, but poems can be written without them.  I began my poetry with free verse, and gradually became more and more fixed as I went on to learn more about how meter affects the poem, and how rhyme, alliteration, assonance, and the like also affect the reader's experience with a piece of poetry.  And my free verse is all the better for it.  Even if you never write another fixed poem after finishing this course, an intricate understanding of the rules of conventional poe

Hello my fellow Deviants, how has life been treating you?

I just started a new semester in a new Major - Finally got to put the chapter of my failed IT studies behind me and start a new. It feels great, and along with the regained motivation at school, I've also been gaining my motivation to arts back too! This can be seen with me dabbling my toes back in the digital painting and drawing areas, as well as some continued acrylic paintings that I will post pictures of later on. My photographing has been slightly on hold lately, but since it's autumn now and the ruska colors are slowly starting to show up again, I'm going to try and spend some more time outside with my camera!

Meanwhile, I'm going to try to be a bit more active on dA, and look more into what you all have been up to, too. So if there's any specific pieces or art work that you'd like me to peek at, let me know and I'll put aside some time to give you a comment or two (and favorites even!). :) 

Also if my art style could be of use for you, don't be afraid to send me a request. Drawings, paintings, coloring line art... if I can be of help with that, drop me a line!

Geez, I logged on to find a sudden 60+ activity on my feed back area and was all "WTF is going on" just to find out it's you.. Haha.

I'm doing fine. :) Life's been hectic and tossing back and forth but it goes. And you? 
Timo-Theus Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I do that sometimes to my friends ^^ Fav-avalanche ;)

Good to hear from you. It's been waay too long. Life is always hectic.

Me? Same but better than before, I guess. I've been drawing more and more, both traditional and digital ^^
