>>I'd not seen it that way before I started reading your work, but I like the way it flows. <<

Yay!

>>I'm, in general, a fan of poetic forms, and I like how you use them.<<

*grin* I am such a forms maven. I collect the things. I love playing with forms. I've invented at least two new ones for the Torn World project alone.

And that is just the coolest thing ever.

"Lament for an Unlicensed Child" is a rotary:

I made up the tile poem for a story that I just submitted; that will appear in "One-Tick Literature."

I am forever fooling around with forms. I've lost count of how many I have devised over the years.

Re: Thoughts

Neat form and yet a creepy poem.

Do you have your forms listed/explained anywhere?

Re: Thoughts

Um ... not like in a list, no. Some of them are written out in descriptive files, individually. I've never sat down and tried to collate them.

Re: Thoughts

/nods/ reasonable, collating things is often more work than just writing them! I was just curious.

Re: Thoughts

It is something I should probably do, one of these days. I'm sure it would be useful, and if I shared it, people would probably enjoy it.

Re: Thoughts

*grins* I'd treat it as a challenge! :-D

Re: Thoughts

Yeah, it's just a matter of finding time for it, among the jillion other things I have to do. I only got around to listing the serial poetry when someone donated to a complete series, and I realized they hadn't even found all the poems in it.

Re: Thoughts

/nods/ I need to do something similar for the ever-growing list of settings that come out of prompted fiction for me.

Re: Thoughts

I would enjoy seeing that too.

Re: Thoughts

There is an author webpage in the works. I shall add that to the page.
