|This page is something for me to think on, and work on more. Several readers have told me they got lost in my train of thought.
Where's my muse? She'll be back around in time, and I can't force myself past the writer's block in this poem right now. It's not right, but I don't know how to fix it.
I'm saving this "rejection letter" to encourage me to go back and work on specific areas.
Posting here because I can -- just a use of cyberspace sharing if you happened to read this.
Situation for sharing. . . .please don't correct any grammar, but I welcome comments by e-mail.
Publishing poetry isn't easy. Writing poetry isn't easy. When it's right it's worth the effort.

Subject: VoicesNet Poem Submission Results
Recently, you participated in a quarterly international
poetry competition hosted by VoicesNet, the Voices Network,
We judge thousands of poems each quarter from talented
writers from all around the world.
We are sending you this email to let you know the results
of the judging of your poem.
Title: "THE CONFUSION OF AWARENESS"
Result: Declined for Publication - Please resubmit another
poem at www.voicesnet.org/NewEntry.aspx.
We want to encourage you to continue writing and submitting
your poems to VoicesNet.com's regular poetry competitions.
Other than the above result description, we do not provide
individual judging details so please do not request any
We can, though, give you some generalized suggestions that
might help your future poem submissions become more
acceptable to the judges:
Make sure the poem is spell checked! Make sure you are
using the right synonyms. Don't use all lowercase or all
uppercase unless there is a point in doing so! Use a
creative concept. Try different poem formats. If the poem
is long, it better be really good to hold a reader's
attention span. Have someone else proof the grammar in
your poem if that is not your strength. Review the prior
winners at the website and also review the contest
