Bright Light

(An Acrostic)

Let us start our story, way back at the beginning,
Introduce conflict and concern, charm with characterisation,
Great skills we must show, not tell. Be erudite, entertaining as well,
Handle flow and feelings, formulate drama to be fascinating,
Then illuminate and inform, climax at the conclusion.

Bright Light

(A Cinquain)

Shed light,
Portray your tale,
Entertain us with words,
Create thoughts, feelings, change, delight,
Be bright.
