I’ve been playing around with a new poem and trying this editing thing I’ve heard so much about when it comes to poetry. I usually write and post, never looking back to rework lines or improve my writing. New year, new process.
How do you work through your poetry? One and done or rework until perfect?
In 2012, I wrote this story as a response to a writing prompt. It was shared live within some churches across the east coast by friends and people who read it and asked if they could do so. I have read it in Toastmasters meetings and shared it in live readings over the years. Today I took it out to dust it off, improve it a bit, and remind myself of the power of sharing our stories.
