Welcome to my site at The Authors Haunt!
I'm a confessed poet. I can get away with it because I'm retired and have got some money coming in. Otherwise I'd warn anyone not to try it, unless you have a really good day job. I went the route of getting writing degrees and years of working as a paid writer or teacher of one sort or another and I'd be happy to chat with anyone about those kind of options.
Why poetry? Well, one reason is
that I'm older than dirt and my memory isn't all that great, and
when I tried to write stories I would always forget where I was
going with it and the characters would take over. They would
tell their stories, and I wanted to tell mine. Most poems
occupy a single page, and I can deal with that. Another reason
is that poetry is the only legal way I know of exposing myself, and
I do enjoy that...
