...a writer of weird things.
Scary only in ink.
Is it National Poetry Month. Well, sheesh. That one passed me by. Mind you I have been in Cyprus. I like a bit of poetry. Do you write it, Cate? Your prose is very lyrical.
I started out writing poetry, realised I wasn't very good at it, and moved onto prose instead.
'Not very good?' I find that hard to believe.I'm like some kind of poetry evangelist. I'm always encouraging my writing friends to write it.I do find that it informs my prose. I've had half a dozen good sales that came from an arc that started life as a poem. But, that said, there's only so much time in the day. And I will say that my poetry acceptance rate is mad compared to my prose. So, it keeps me going through my dry spells. Hey hoy. If you took it up again, Cate, I'm fairly sure that you'd rock it.
I love the idea of book-spine poetry. Actually I love the idea of "found" poetry or prose generally.
What I find most fascinating about this whole thing is that people still read John Saul books! ;-)
Believe it, DeborahI love book-spine poetry because it's easy, SimonActually this would be my first John Saul book, Robert :D
