    Mood: Chipper

    Well, I've been away in Orlando for four days, but I am home again. I have a poetry class in 6 days, which makes me happy, as it means that I will most likely be writing more soon. Best wishes and happy writing!

    It bothers me when I see rude comment on here. I'm not talking about harsh comments- those, one should expect if you're being critqued by other writers. We are the most vicious because, after all, we know when someone has potential, now don't we? No, I'm talking about calling a person stupid for whatever they wrote, rather than sticking to the subject at hand; the poem. The person may BE stupid. Infuriatingly so. But if we don't all give respect, we will not all get it, and it's simply unfair. I'm not saying we should all agree, or even like each other. Hell, bash each other's poetry into the ground. But bash the poetry, not the person, and for heaven's sake, back it up with examples, and FACT (as much as facts come into play with art, anyway). In short, for goodness sake, it's a WEBSITE, and I'm sorry, but not being able to write Shakespeare does not make a person stupid, and even being stupid doesn't make a person unworthy of respect. Let's all stop talking down to each other.

    Well, I've been back for a week. I took the first of six classes in my first poetry workshop ever today. We did an exercise called 'penta poems' where you're given five random words with which to make a poem. You then have the option of adding five words of your own. Ten words or less to make a poem. It's pretty challenging, but fun. It was awesome to see what everyone came up with. There were some pretty cool poems that came out of it.

    Going to Texas for a week to visit my father's strict methodist family. Love and hugs and kisses, and I'll see you all in a week, if I survive!

    Mood: Yeay!!

    I bet you all missed me. I bet you couldn't write for crying... Nah. Oh well. I guess I live with the knowledge that maybe you sniffled? A little bit? Lol, enough self-serving babble.

    Anyway, I disappeared forever, and I haven't been writing much (although I do have a very largely unfinished novel I am attempting to work on). But, I've written two poems in the past two days, so, go me! Okay, they're probably both crap, because they were each written (on two respective nights), in the middle of the night, in about five minutes each. Who cares!? I've written. That's gotta be good, right?

    Everybody just talks. They just talk, without thinking about what they're saying. I feel like I'm the only one who ever even attempts to walk in another's shoes, and I'm bloody well sick of it.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
