I started posting my poems back in May 2016 because between Leanne and myself, we had a couple of songwriting projects that interested us and we we were contemplating putting in a submission to do some work as a team.
At that point, I had no place that could serve as an accessible CV of my creative writing work and so Leanne set me up with the blog,and I began posting like crazy – self-published books, poems published here and there and so on. The aim was that the party on the other end of our submission could readily check out some of my work, and also some of Leanne’s activities (which I recommend for a visit).
Well, I had forgotten what a hungry creative beast I am. I became quite addicted to putting my work on the blog and that only intensified as I realised that there were such things as likes and follows in play in the blogosphere. I know, I know, I’m not the first, won’t be the last, but it is both a humbling and an inspiring knowledge.
I’ve been inspired by the sense that I could place my work before a group of people who might willingly read (that would be yourself) and give feedback. That duty has been solely Leanne’s for quite a while now.
Now, at year end, I have been interested to look back and see what flew and what flopped – as measured by your like button.
Without further ado, the best liked pieces so far (and please feel free to revisit):
Fifth: Fading Beyond
Fifth: through passion (hey!)
Fourth: the new gecko
Third: necessary preparations
Second: amaze me
First: old dogs
For me, there are some surprises in this group, but I’m also delighted by them.
