Notebook level one

1. Visit the library and read the poems mentioned under each of the ten groupings in this chapter. After each poem, make notations in your journal about the poem's success as a sequence. For instance, evaluate the strength of each part and determine whether any part could have been eliminated without affecting meaning or theme.

2. Select five ideas from your "Idea File" (or conceive new ideas) that suit five of the ten groupings. Follow precepts explained in this chapter about preparing to write a sequence. Compose yours. (After you have composed your sequences, note any problems — or how you overcame them!—in your journal.)
