What is the form for poetry that works (for me, especially)?
I’m all for epiphany type writing, where I am basically riffing on the strength of my message which is usually based on personal experience and raw feeling.
But I admire a certain restraint, a certain cadence, a certain surprise, all of which seems rehearsed. As in practiced and edited wildly.
I notice this in poetry that resonates with me.
I read Margaret Atwood’s tips to the writer tonight.
She explained person A will hate the writing that person B loves.
Aside from this salient point, I notice that to some degree, visuals can make or break your blog.
And then I have the question: do I just blog? Or should I save some writings on the side, intended for publication only? I tend to want to blog everything. I find this a real quandary.
If there are thoughts on these meanderings I would welcome them.
