    New Adventure: Starting my first story.

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Crim, Nov 15, 2012.

    I've been itchin' to start on a short story/children's rhyme and I've got the motivation to really get it going. I haven't taken any classes in writing but I was hoping someone could explain the poetic meter of anapestic tetrameter to a novice. Any help on it would be awesome, I want the whole first book to be in that poetic meter.
