Patti_ Thanx darlin’… Truth is I’ve written a lot late at night & the worse for wear and for my part loved most of it. But I can be very arrogant about things I (think) I do well… People would compliment my food when I cooked and the best I could do was ” Yeh, thanks, I know”! Still happens.
I know in the PAD I wrote some absolute drivel but it was from prompts and I only gave myself 30 mins to think about each one. But whether good or bad, once I started to write it WAS easy especially the better pieces… What can I say..? Having never interacted with other poets before I had just assumed that everyone was like me… Its easy to write what you think/feel & publishers are all bastards!
