    I'm going to write a novel.. Not just any novel, of course, but one written completely in poetry form. I think it'll be cool. I wanted to do short poems, since they seem to carry more emotions, so something like a cinquain (since I'm good at them anyway) or whatever.. (only not haiku's, since their odd beat patterns don't make for good layering)

    First of all, I need to know that it's actually possible..

    second of all, I need ideas for what kind of poems it should be. I've been doing cinquains too much..

    It just can't be too complex like a villanelle(sp?) or a sonnet or whatever. (And it'd be helpful if it didn't rely on rhyming patterns..

    Why don't you just start writing and see where it ends up? I used to write all my poetry in rhyme and beat, but now almost always in freestyle...so if you end up with a really long piece then you can restructure it later, and formulate a "style". ...but just start...more than likely it will end up as an "ode" or something if you want it to be a "novel" type.

    to 'odes' have a pattern to follow? (I never really learned about them)

    I was thinking long and hard about this.. and realized cinquains would be just has hard to do for a full novel..

    So this is going to be harder than I thought.. >.< whee! ^.^
