    Well done, Vashti. (I’m no good at all with poetry.) I enjoyed the article too… except #11, since i just can’t write poems! Hahaha! Mega hugs. 😀

      Hi Teagan! Thank you. I’m happy you enjoyed the haiku and article but I’m having a hard time believing that you’re no good at poetry. Your writing is just a step from it––it’s so beautiful.

    Good haiku and love the suggestions. No comment on Teagan’s reply (I also agree she writes beautifully) but I’m another one who can’t do poetry.

      I thought the same for many years until I finally gave it a try. Now I love it and can’t stop. 🙂

    I enjoy trying to find a different point of view, but sometimes I find myself going too far. Sometimes the obvious can be the most beautiful. For example “thank you” can be the simplest and most powerful reply


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega May 30, 2015 at 10:35 am #

      I agree. Not about you going too far, but what you said about the simple answer is the best. Phew! 😉 I feel that multiple POVs has its purpose. It depends on the genre and story. I’ve mentioned the book, Lord of the Rings, this is a perfect example where multiple POVs work perfectly.

    Love your haiku. Went to the site and read the ways that we can learn to think outside the box. Very unique and different ideas.


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega May 30, 2015 at 10:39 am #

      Thank you Patty! Oh that was cool. I loved the ideas too and pinned the article on my writing board for future reference. 😉

    To think outside the box. Yes, taking a shower, it’s true; the water is relaxing so that must be why. I also didn’t know poetry could be used in that way, which works for me since I like poetry already. 🙂 Drawing is another one I do, usually of scenes or characters I’m working on.


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega May 30, 2015 at 10:48 am #

      Ha, ha! In the shower? I believe poetry gives you the greatest freedom of expression! I love to draw too! or my Fantasy Angels Series I sketched out each character and illustrated a map of my world! It helped me really get into my story. 😀

        Lol, yes! 😀 That’s so cool! You are very talented, Vashti. I have yet to create a perfect map for my world, but it’s probably something I should start on. 🙂

    Very clever, Vashti 🙂


  9. Serins May 30, 2015 at 2:51 am #

    I’d like to think that I’m already an outside the box kind of thinker. 🙂

    I agree Vashti if we are not prisoners to convention it gives us the freedom to create and experiment with new methods. It opens the door to imagination 😃

    I’ll have to get outside my box more often 🙂

    Meantime, you got me thinking differently, Vashti.


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega May 30, 2015 at 10:55 am #

      I think you do think beyond the box, hugh. Otherwise, how could you come up with all your brilliant ideas––The Mildred Awards––hello! Among others. 😀 xx

    I’ve done all 11 and they work for real.

    My thinking is so outside of the box. It was never in a box to begin with. LOL

    […] Quiroz-Vega: Boxed Out. Again, I thought of calling this one Ronovan, amazing, huh? So many people writing about me. Sigh. […]
