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.
