A few of my savvy fellow writers use YouTube as a means of engaging readers and fans, so I decided to give it a try by making a video of one of my poems. I used iMovie and stock photos from my favorite online source, Morguefile.
The poem “Picking Up Speed” is about the feeling parents get when their children seem to be growing up too fast. I vividly remember being a girl, thinking it would take forever to be old enough to drive a car. The next thing I knew, I had kids who were taller than me, driving cars. What happened?
I hope you enjoy the video! I had fun making it, but I won’t tell you how many times I rerecorded the reading! That was the hardest part.
