I suck at poetry
There’s a whopping mighty big revelation for ya, well, I had wondered at several times of my life, but looking through over 20 years of trying- Yes, I do suck at writing poems. I’m a Vogon in Shakespearian clothing; have you read any of them on this blog? ‘Poetry in Commution’ is the category!
How dare I inflict such pain upon the universe! No wonder I’ve never had any accepted for publication!
You would think that with all the Creative Writing courses I’ve been on, the writing groups I have been in, AND my poetry Reading debut at the Chester Literature Festival in October 2011 (0r was it 12?). I launched headlong into the Crème Egg Trilogy; made up of The Chocolate Killer, the Chocolate Ghost and Attack of the Scream Eggs WHY did nobody stop me???
So, here’s the next challenge, finding a poem or two that could be sent into an Anthology submission at the end of July. Grief, I’ve got three and half weeks to come up with something half-decent.
Blimey, guess the pressure’s on then!!
Here’s hoping I won’t be like the Fruit and Nut, that got stuck in a rut.
