A Scary Thing to Do

I don't write poetry. Ever. In my former life as a high school teacher, I read so much bad poetry that I swore never to inflict the likes on anyone.

But...oh, my gosh! You writers are getting to me! What am I thinking? You are real writers. You write. Why would I do this to myself? Why would I do this to anyone?

Well --
a) You don't know me.
b) If I choose, I can never access this site again.
c) If I lose your respect, it was short-lived anyway.
d) All of the above.

Ever the cautious one, if I still choose "d" tomorrow, I'll go with All of the above.


  1. yeah so scary

  2. I will be here tomorrow and I expect to see that poem! :)

    And I have a sneaking suspicion, after reading your contest piece, that it will be great.

  3. You are wetting my curiosity in giant waves!

  4. I know for a fact, that whatever you choose to write here - short stories, essays, poems, articles,tall tales, narratives, yarns, journal entries,, it will be wonderful. ;) Looking forward to your post!
