The Power of Prose

Francine Prose's new book, Reading Like a Writer, is based on her theory that "the trick to writing is reading, carefully, deliberately, and slowly." Over at book-blog.com, Deborah Hamel has posted a haiku contest in which you must use the word "prose." The prize is - what else? - a copy of Prose's book! Anyway, here's my entry.
Study Prose -
edify writer's imagination
there are no cons
Now, I'm off to do some reading...
