It was good to have a poem appear last week on Ink, Sweat and Tears. There is nothing like seeing one of your poems 'in print' to give you a lift.
According to my paypal account I seem to have won a small scale poetry competition organised by the Write Idea. We had to write a poem a week for six weeks and I really wasn't expecting to get anywhere with it so that was a nice discovery last night.
I'm going to spend the winnings on some poetry craft books - probably The Poet's companion: a guide to the pleasures of writing poetry By Kim Addonizio, Dorianne Laux once I've worked out how to get the funds out of paypal.
