Poetic License

I’m asked often, if everything I write is true.

Let’s put it this way…imagine writing on a long strip of elastic, truth slightly stretched, to enlighten and entertain.

Emily Dickinson called it, writing on slant.  I call it, accessorizing, yet don’t consider myself a fiction writer. Wish I had it in me to pen a novel, to be as prolific as Hemingway, Jane Austen and Stephen king.

Thousands of words creating make-believe, take my breath away.

David Stewart is a gifted fictioneer, if you will, penning dozens of spare, pithy pieces, many no more than 300 words, written wonderfully, with sparkle, wit and ease…sigh.

As for me, I just love to write, plain and simple. Mick from England once asked if I was ever lonely.  “No,” I said, without pause, “not as long as I can write.”

How can one be lonesome with so many nouns, verbs and adjectives to keep you company, poetic license becoming a rite of passage.  images-2


About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

    Not a “write of passage”? 😉
    I think you’d be good at fiction. I believe most fiction is largely fact. It has to be so, to be believable. You know all those times you think back on a situation and think “Oh, I wish I’d said so-and-so instead”? Well, in fiction, you did!

    All good story tellers know how to creatively embroider without obliterating the actual story. It’s sort of like make-up on a woman. When done correctly, it enhances. When overdone, the original beauty is hidden.

  3. I like “accessorizing.” That kind of says it all, doesn’t it?

    Accessorizing! That’s what I need to do. It would be telling the truth in a more interesting way. My life would seem less boring. Less boring to others anyway…I already think I am fascinating. 🙂


  5. Adjectives are equivalent to the perfect shoes to match that purse.
