It's a coincidence, because I was set a much detested English Sonnet to write for school work yesterday - I think I completely ruined all iambic pentameter, lol
I like this form, it reminds me of one I read by W.B.Yates. interesting write:)
Thanks, haha well, for starters don’t worry much about the meter. Worry about the rhyme. Once you are good with working with rhymes, then pay attention to the meter and ignore the rhyme and the meaning of a poem for a moment, just focus on the meter. Once you get the meter right, then focus on everything if possible. So, you may end up writing a couple of sonnets till you get there or you might just need to write some till you master it. I’m still writing a couple till I get there, and I bet as the years come, I’ll still be writing more till I get there;)
All the best!
