Well, this was a nice surprise yesterday! As you may know I am a frequent visitor to www.writersdigest.com , and in fact take part in their ‘Wednesday Poetry Prompts’ every week, the resulting poems posted here. A few weeks ago I saw their post asking people the question of why they write poetry, and to submit their essays by e-mail. I wrote and submitted, not thinking it likely that mine would be chosen to be posted on the site, in fact I posted it here for my followers’ perusal. So imagine my surprise yesterday when I received an email informing me that it had just been posted on the site! Seeing my name and picture right there was somewhat surreal, but this really made my day and has encouraged me to keep going to try and get my poetry out there. See the post for yourself here:
I was hestitant about submitting it to the site, but so happy I did now! I’d encourage anyone else who may be hesitant about this sort of thing to just go for it – who knows what it may lead to? 🙂
