Oddly, the first piece that I wrote that got published was a poem, back in about fourth grade; it was published in a teachers’ magazine.
Except as required for grades, I don’t think I’ve written a poem since. I just can’t write that way-unless you want to count the last thousand or so blogs as free verse.
Although I must admit the classic poet with the turtleneck and beret looks cool. Unfortunately, my neck is too fat, and I shudder to think of the reaction I’d get regarding the beret.
So, blogging it will be.
