Acrostics are a challenging form of writing, a game of words, and fun to create and to read.
This eBook guides you in creating prose/poetry acrostics. These acrostics are readable on two levels, the content itself, and the "acrostic" message. Acrostics are fun to create, and the "constraint" associated with creating sentences or phrases using a set of letters or words provides a challenge, but is far from an obstacle. At times this "constraint" is an enabler.
Prose/poetry acrostics come in two varieties: fun and functional.
Fun acrostics deal with information, feelings, and insights.
Functional acrostics deal with procedures and processes.
Here's a fun acrostic (read the first letter of each line):
Another day, wake up, rise and shine,
Laugh or curse or roll over,
Anything for a few more ZZZZs.
Responsibilities will wait till
Morning has broken.
Listen - creatures are stirring.
Unrelenting - that wakeup call
Knowing the new day has dawned.
Here's a functional acrostic
Creative energies. Their fruits
Often risk being
Plagiarized, at times undetected
Yet the author must protect them. A
Reality, not always sinister.
Generates insight, and value, and
Holding control over it is
The essence of the copyright.
