While doing some research to answer a question from someone who recently discovered poetry I found this promising online writing group. It’s funny what you discover when helping others. I’ve done some research to gauge the effectiveness of scribophile. After much internal debate I decided to join and so I did. Last night I became a member of scribophile. This morning I received a “welcome to the community” in my inbox from a member. Needless to say I felt quite welcomed and that I found a relatively friendly place. I expect to grow as a writer and I would also like to write better constructive critiques of others in hopes of helping when I can. I am ready for constructive feedback.
Personally, I don’t care if someone tells me my poetry sucks as long as they can tell me why! I have had experience with this before on another blog and I was hurt because I didn’t know why it sucked. I think I may have digressed a bit.
I plan to provide commentary about my experiences on scribophile. Stay tuned! 😀
