Poetrepreneur + Video #1

Out of crisis comes creativity.

I've been in crisis for sometime now. Without getting into too much detail, let's just say that just because your child is technically an adult doesn't mean you stop worrying and/or parenting (though more hands off) while they navigate through some catastrophic decisions that reverberate through the rest of your family.

I am living this "dream" (nightmare) right now, but my poetry, this blog, and most especially, the Poetry Friday community, have given me solace. To take my mind off my heartache I have put my energy into creating something heartfelt, something helpful, and hopefully something humorous.
I have become a Poetrepreneur.








Tapping into my background as a former Elementary Teacher and School Librarian coupled with my MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, I have created a series of How-To-Write poetry videos and companion handbooks. Today I present to you my first video: 10 Steps to Writing Riddle Poems. Please let me know what you think: the good, the bad, and the ugly. I value your feedback and I appreciate your insights.
