Poetry Diary

Maybe you keep a diary? If so your diary will be full of great ideas for poems and stories. Maybe in your diary you wrote about a time when you were sad or angry or happy. Could you write about it again but make it rhyme or perhaps go into more detail about how you felt and why using similes and metaphors (for more about similes and metaphors see the section The Poetry Toolbox). Maybe you were so sad your tears fell like rain or so angry you erupted like a volcano.
