Welcome to my A-Z 2018, for which I am revisiting Africa, the continent of my childhood and my dreams. The posts are, as always, infoheavy and opinionated, but they are sectioned off - some music, the day’s topic, couple writers, a slideshow from the safaris – plenty ways to cherry-pick. So you may consume just as much, or as little, as you're cool with. Zero obligation to agree with any of my views either, feel free to air yours :)

But I’ll cross those bridges when I come to them and chance a theme. And my theme is fixed verse forms. Totally predictable, I know. I don't believe in nasty surprises. I have some favourite forms that I write to often, and there are others that I don’t really know anything about. Well, it's time to find out! 26 letters, 26 forms, 26 poems.
No guarantees on rules and metres and feet remaining unbroken, of course. That iambic pentathingy particularly gives me butterflies in the tummy, except mine are never butterflies but more like caterpillars with that slithery-shuddery mode of locomotion. All I'll say about rules is - will observe as far as able.
