If I was Trapped on an Island: Movies I Would Bring (Using Poetry!)

If I was Trapped on an Island: Movies I Would Bring (Using Poetry!)

Howdy, dear pals, poets, and powerful protectors in the ways of nerdom!

Sorry, it’s been a little while.  As a school teacher, it is that time of year to get our classrooms prepped for our new dear students.  AND, I finished and submitted the manuscript for formatting and printing for my latest book! It should be out VERY SOON (more details to come once I have the release date.)

Something I like doing as an author are interviews (yet I am a nervous wreck for once at school or if I was trying to get a new job! HA!)  Unique questions are entertaining and challenging.  So, I decided to do that; entertain you with information, but in a way that was partly difficult for me.

A popular question that has been around for ages is: “If you were trapped on a deserted island, what movies would you bring with you?”  First off, I was curious about the fact that if I had electricity for a T.V., I should probably find a way to make contact with someone to escape; I don’t do well with heat! LOL! But, answering strictly for fun, it is a hard choice.

So, I used a writing style I cherished; poetry! Acrostic poems are fun and one you most likely did in school.  It’s where you spell a word, going down, and the lines of the piece have to start with the first letter of each line.

An example would be:






The rules I set for myself was I can use my FULL NAME, but the titles had to start with the matching letter of the line and no repeats (but if it is a short franchise of films, I clustered them into one spot a few times, lol!)  This was hard to think of a few and numerous of my favorite movies could not be represented due to I not having a letter that matched the start of its title! BOO!

So, let’s use written art to learn more about each other! ^_^  You can do this too; I’d love to see which movies you would have with you on your island too IN THE COMMENTS!
