My late blooming interest in writing comes from having to compose many a sermon for churches while pastors are away. There is a need to be succinct and coherent when dealing with ones spiritual life. Plus, all these years of reading (plus watching some bad TV shows) has shown me that I can write better than many professionals. I've written some essays, even tried writing a play, my book is lost in cyberspace and lately have delved into poetry. You know what, I found i like poetry.
I'm hoping to get some honest, constructive critiquing here at writing.com I can't get it from my wife; she loves everything I write, even the lousy stuff.
