I have to write a Shakespearean Sonnet for English class and, I'll be honest, writing in Iambic Pentameter is probably the most annoying thing in the world. What devil conjured up this atrocious writing style? Anyway, do any of you have any experience writing in Iambic Pentameter? How was it for you? Do you have or, rather, are there any tips or tricks for making the process easier? It seems like every time I try to do normal things like place a preposition next to an article ("to the", "in the", "on a", etc.) it makes two unstressed syllables and the meter is broken.
