I have been writing for a long time. One of my first poems I wrote for myself was a reaction to a book I read, No Language But A Cry. I wanted to be a voice for this infant that was severely abused by her father. She never spoke until her teens. I wanted to stand up for those who did not have a voice…. I had big dreams then
In the nearly 40 years since I started writing for me the sheer volume of poetry I have written would be staggering if I took the time to count them. I know in high school I had already hit 200. The dream of me writing for a book would have to be issued in multiple volumes.
So when I write I don’t have any set pattern I follow. I am a free verse writer for the most part. I do occasionally dabble in lyric writing with verses and chorus. And over the years since I have done the daily prompts I have expanded my vocabulary some.
You by now have figured out I am very grateful for the variety of things I have accomplished so far with my writing. Now If I could just be the victor of a writing contest.
