An introduction!

Postby Michelle » Thu Oct 15, 2009 10:43 pm

Hello all!
I thought I'd pop in while pouring over all of your lovely works and introduce myself. I'm Michelle, a stay at home mom and unpublished poet.
I've been thinking that it was high time that I got out there and share some of the poetry I've been working on, but since only my high school English teacher, my boyfriend, mother, and a few friends have read my poetry I thought I'd better see if any of it was actually worth the paper it's been written on...
I looked at several different boards and chose this one because the poetry I read was readable and the criticism seemed valuable and like it had been given real thought. I hope I'll be able to add something valuable to your forum!

Dear Michelle,

Welcome onboard! We hope your Zeugma experience is as benefecial as it has been for most of us still active at the forum. Looking forward to reading your work soon and hoping to get some insightful comments on work by our other members.

Poetry is ALWAYS worth it - whatever the medium, it is the rewrite that really matters, as you will soon discover on the board :).

Cheers and welcome again.

Hello, Michelle. Welcome. Did you bring duct tape?

Thanks to both of you! Yes, Agnes, I find myself needing it so often around the house I usually have it on me. :smt003

Ravi, I'm missing you on the Toil and Succor and more.
Agnes you still make me laugh a lot and you got skills.
Michelle, I agree with Ravi's response about poetry always being worth it. I'm happy you will be sharing in the poetry writing, let's love for the love of writing, and help of what helping can do for all of us!

O
you are poetry

Hi, everyone! I'm back. I didn't have internet access for awhile, then I was working hard on a website...but I figured in honor of National Poetry Month I'd grace you with my presence again! Haha! I see I have a lot of catching up to do!
