The Prestige

July 27, 2009

I have updated my Active Reading page with a new exercise based on this quote from The Prestige, where Michael Cain explains how a magic trick works.  I knew that thought would come in handy somewhere along the line, and I remember I even started to write a poem based on the old 1,2,..3 for my mum’s birthday around the time.

The upcoming Slow Magic exhibition brought this idea back, and I suppose that’s one of the things you get from having a framework to work within… all your old ideas have these slots to fall into.  Anyway, it’s just a simple way of looking at poems, but every little helps when you’re writing.
