Unlocking Rhyming Block

There is a website called WriteExpress that have a Free Online Rhymers Dictionary that help poets with writer block to develop the talent of rhyming poetry.

Rhymers offer six types of rhymes. The rhyme types are as listed:

  1. End Rhymes – words that have same final vowel rhyme and follow the same consonant sound(s).
    1. Hat/chat
    2. Plate/fate
    3. buttonhole/lightpole
  2. Last Syllable Rhymes – words that have same sounds following the last syllable border. This is normally a consonant, vowel, and a added consonant.
    1. humanity/vanity
    2. threw/flew
    3. pleat/feet
  3. Double Rhymes – words that have the same vowel sound in the second-to-last syllable and all subsequent sounds.
    1. Talker/stalker
    2. Thrumming/coming
    3. Gator/waiter
  4. Triple Rhymes – words that have the same vowel sound in the third - to-last syllable and all succeeding sounds. Triple Rhyming words must have at least three syllables.
    1. Antelope/tightrope
    2. Awfully/scenery
    3. Beauty/vitally
  5. Beginning Rhymes – words that have the same first consonant sound(s) and the same first vowel sound.
    1. Scarcely/cedar

in the upcoming rhyme workshop.
Will you be joining? Remember if you feel overcommitted I am offering casual places in this one, subject to some conditions-

If you can't commit to the whole rhyme workshop you will be allowed to post examples/experiments if you contribute to the discussion on the workshop page and critique at least 3 other workshop postings for each of your own. And you need to talk to me about it first by PM so that I can add you as a workshop participant.
