  4. Great job Amalia. I know enough about Greek mythology to appreciate the references, but I'll be sure to read your linked post later for a little more context.

  10. Wow! You really did just tell his story in a haiku- I'm uber-impressed!

    I think using haikus might be a good tool for really condensing what my novels are about. Even if I don't follow the syllable rule. :)

  11. Okay, clearly you don't suck at haiku. You just suck at telling if you suck at haiku.

    Very well done!
