Would anyone by chance know of a good poetry publisher? One that doesn 't charge anything and will take work by relative unknowns, even if said unknown is 65 and have an e-collection which hasn't done squat in almost 13 years?
I've added a new item to my portfolio:
 What if I would tell you?  (18+)
My entry for the February Journey Through Genres contest is about saying the three words.

I'm trying to enter this month's "Journey Through Genres" contest with this piece, entitled "What if I would tell you". Even if you're not judging the contest, please give this one a look, You might even be reminded of something.
I am trying to find a link to a WDC romantic poetry contest which closes at the end of the month. I would like to submit something to that contest, but may need to use another site. Thanks for your help.

It could be this one:

Journey Through Genres: Official Contest  (E)
Write a short story in the given genre to win big prizes!

I thought it was the WdC Heart Throb one, but it's closed now. It can help you keep up with them if you click the Plus sign in the upper right corner of the item you want to keep, then it will go to your Favorites. You can even make folders in your favorites so it can go into a specific one. Then, if you are looking for it again, you can do a Search in your favorites and, assuming they used the key word(s) you are searching with, you'll find it...or you can just scan your favorites if they didn't use the same word(s) you used. *Smile* Good luck!
I can't seem to get going on my writing since the first of the year. Anyone know how to help?
There are lots of things people find that helps them break through writer's block, though probably nothing works for everyone every time. Try...reviewing, entering contests or challenges (like mine--"The Contest Challenge *Bigsmile*), reading, people watching and imagining what their lives might be, staring at your bathroom tiles (weird, but I saw this mentioned by 2 different people recently so apparently it works), try prompts and story starters, go back and edit some of your own work, and google "how to stop writer's block" and other variations. *Wink*

Good luck! *Shamrock*
Finally, I have my old 874-3150 account running. After two weeks of using the wrong password, I finally found the correct one tonight and hooked it up. I may even post something in the next few days! I do have some questions regarding the page I set up after this mess started, so I might appreciate some help with that. I finally found the key to getting back in and I'm ready to go.

I still like Jepordy! better than Password.
