Poet Ogden Nash broke rules.
This is National Poetry Month. I’m proud I attempted my own volume of poetry. The Kindle e-book is entitled 101 PO’ed Poems: Frustrations in Free Verse.
I thought of the master during the process, hoping he’d surrender a smirk or snicker over some of my ravings.
Essentially, Nash proves there are two kinds of writers:
1. Those who write what they think editors/agents/teachers/librarians/booksellers (and other scary mythic creatures) expect.
2. Those who write what they’d love to read themselves.
Are you having fun with what you write? If you don’t, how can readers enjoy themselves?
