A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Greetings, everyone! I hope everyone is doing well!
“Low- Hanging fruit”, a blackout poem by Austin Kleon, found HERE
For this week, I thought we give something that is popular a try, with of course doing it Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie style.
This week, I would like you to try your hand at Blackout technique.
The twist? The usual form for Blackout is Blackout poetry. I welcome all other forms of entry as well: flash fiction, stories, anything.
What is the Blackout technique?
The Blackout technique is when you take a text or a poem or an article, anything written really, and you black out most of the words with a black marker (or a digital equivalent), leaving only few words/parts uncovered. The uncovered words become your poem/story.
As I mentioned, most popular form is Blackout poetry, where one creates a poem from a blackout text or another poem even. It would be very interesting to also see short stories and flash fiction created this way. The sentences, left out, juxtaposed to one another to challenge the concepts of cult classics, such as maybe a paragraph from “To Kill a Mocking Bird”.
I hope you have fun participating, and please don’t forget to link up/pingback and tag your post with MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie, prompt, creative writing, blackout and similar.
I am looking forward to reading all entries!
