Author has written 12 stories for General, Haiku, Life, Nature, Love, and Sci-Fi.
Recently, I've been assigned to write a sonnet in English class. At first I thought, "This shouldn't be so bad, I write poetry all the time!"
Oh, sweet, innocent, ignorant me from two days ago (at the time of writing this). But yeah, I'm definitely not fancying this classic sort of poetry. Maybe it's just because the only real poetry I practiced before this with a strict syllable set was haikus, and I'm stuck in that mindset. I guess the point I'm trying to get at here is that I'm happy to have the internet. I don't think poetry in the style I write would get such positive feedback in an environment other than this, especially when there are still a lot of people who view poetry in the kind of mindset that reading Shakespearean sonnets can give someone. [DISCLAIMER: I actually enjoy reading sonnets, and I have nothing against the people who write them. I can just see how some people wouldn't really get into them. Also, I could never write them, so if you do, kudos.]
So in an even shorter summary of a short statement, The internet is awesome and poetry on the internet is awesome.
Thank you for reading my babbling, even if it just was that paragraph.
