To be an established writer, you need to write. Regularly, daily and if at all possible, hit a target number of words.
Well, I don't know how many copies of my poetry have sold, other than two.....and one of those was to my daughter.
Why didn't she read the poems sooner, I hear you ask?
Because some of them deal with how I was feeling as an adult, and she as a child -then- might not understand my viewpoint.
The upshot of this musing is that I must try to write more often.....and with the warmer weather conditions approaching, I just might have the inspiration a few yards from my door.
