Poetry Under Pressure

Motto: There is no disaster so great that a wise man cannot turn it to advantage and no advantage so great that a fool cannot turn it to disaster.

Having recently read *How the World sees You* by Sally Hogshead, I completed the assessment and ran key parts in front of members of my writing group – Eyre Writers – for their input.

The feedback was poetry, poetry, poetry.

These days, I write poetry only when under pressure and that is usually within an exercise in the writing group.

Verse or worse comes easily to mind.

If this is how I am seen, then I guess I had better accept the verdict.

For anything you like or don't like sufficiently to want to comment about my writings, please use Feedback tab.
