Ballads and other things that sing...

I just wanted to give you the info on the Ballad and what the confines are for creating them. Granted, consider that the rules are a generalized framework and not as strict as the rules imply. The Ballad has more wiggle room for imagination than the sonnet. Any how, if you are still struggling with the idea of the ballad, write a ballad about a story or film that you are very familiar with. Use 5 significant events in the story to be the basis for the ballad...really it is just like using a plot line. Reading day on Friday with final drafts due on Tuesday.
