I Forgot


I Forgot
©1991 Susan Noyes Anderson

I wrote a good story, but something went wrong.
I had all the characters where they belong.
The setting was great, and the word use was strong.
The length was just right ... not too short, not too long.

I checked everything. I indented a lot.
I spelled stuff exactly the way I was taught.
I wrote a good story, but my teacher thought
it had one major weakness: I left out the plot.

This is a little too close to home today. I've been working on a talk for an upcoming women's conference, and I deleted the whole thing! Yea. Not good.

That sounds an awful lot like the story my son was just telling me when he was explaining why he didn't get a good grade on a paper ;-)

Very cute!

Thanks for the great music! It made me smile right out loud! And yes - the plot- I find I do that more and more..start a story and then totally forget what it has relevance to!! somewhere there has to be a reason, right??

Brian Miller said...

Amy Involuntary said...

Hahaha! I love this. It made me smile. I have written so many stories like that!

Darlene said...

I remember this one!!! It was good then, and it is good now.

Listening Daisy said...

I think your plot is about not having a plot (to the poem anyways). Maybe your story is just about description.

Jenny said...

Love your plot!

What a fun little story!

You are always interesting and fun to read!
