Hello, my name is Elle Vue! I recently graduated from Loyola University New Orleans with a BA in English Writing along with a year spent abroad studying French and ballet at Sorbonne University in Paris, France.
In my free time I am an avid reader of 16th century English literature, 19th century Russian literature, Greek classics, 1920s novels, and (almost) all philosophy. I also enjoy fashion, painting, and spending time outdoors.
This website will have four categories: “Writing Tips,” “Prompts,” “My Poetry,” and “Random Thoughts.” Later on I may add a category about book suggestions or perhaps essay writing, but for now this is enough!
Writing Tips: Ideas for writers’ block, ways to reframe ideas, tricks for making poems more captivating, etc.
Prompts: Broad topics usually based on nature or a fundamental truth. I believe narrow topics discourage writers from taking full creative control. Prompts should act as a guide and a tool, not a recipe for a great poem, although I do steer writers towards using symbolism.
My Poetry is going to serve as a main component of this blog, usually followed by a prompt or tip post soon before/after.
Random Thoughts is the only sections that acts as sort-of a wild card. It’s going contain beginnings of short stories, drunk slurs, 3:00 am thoughts, etc. I applaud the poor sap who chooses to read these but I also suggest you give it a go.
