Today is the last day of creative writing with Mrs. Keskes, throughout this semester I have gained a lot in this class. I learned about all types or poetry, some that I did not even know existed. I learned about all the things that go into play and screen writing, which has really opened my eyes to the possibilities that writing presents. Play writing is by far my favorite thing we did in this class, and it helped me build a liking for writing.
Hello, I’m Ian Orr, and this will be my final blog post for creative writing. I had a vague idea of different writing styles when I first began creative writing, but now that the year is done, I look back and realize how much I’ve grown my writing style. Along with that it has opened up a lot of opportunities for me to do different things with writing, such as play writing, all sorts of different poems like ode’s and sonnet’s. I believe that this class helped me the most, because not only did it help me understand more about writing now, but it expanded what I can do with it in the future.
The piece I am going to share is one from out NaPoWriMo poem books. It was the poem based on another poem shown in class. At first I thought it was kind of cheesy, but after a little bit it’s simplicity and meaningfulness won me over.
“A scuffed brass ring”
So much depends upon a scuffed brass ring
Placed on a finger
Inlaid with a promise
I am participating in national poem writing month, I will post my first poem on this blog, then I will be writing them in the book I made after that.
The lights went out; pure silence…
Two years ago for my brothers senior year spring break trip he decided to go to Spain. It was me my brother and my mom and dad that went on the trip. We stayed 4 days in Madrid then took a train to Barcelona for 4. When we were there we saw amazing towns and architecture. We spent the entirety of one day walking around a town called Toledo
(t uh l EE d oh). Toledo is known for their world class sword craftsmanship, so we got to look in all the stores at their amazing works. Another day we saw the Sagrada Familia, which is a massive church that has been under construction since 1882. It was designed by a famous Spanish architect named Antoni Gaudí, it’s not expected to be done until 2026. You can take tours of it though that me and my family participated in, during which you can go on the bridge connecting the two central towers. It was an incredible experience that I would definitely recommend to anyone that has the opportunity to visit Spain.

This book tells a story about a man called the “Time Traveler” and his journey’s to different eras and locations. It is told from several different perspectives that switch as the book goes on. It is a decently lengthy book but kept my attention without fail. The details used to describe surroundings and objects is very effective and helps get a better picture of what is happening without excessive explanation.
