In four lines, as a Poet, what is your greatest fear? It would be cool if it rhymes. :-)
"A POET'S GREATEST FEAR"
I've managed to write myself into a corner.
The door is over there! And I am over here!
The ink is still wet and the page is slippery.
Getting stuck in a rut.........................................
......................................a Poet's greatest fear.

Nothing to fear but fear itself

it may even make of you an elf

|Well then you just get yourself out of that rut. I find that when I do this to go and do something else.|

my writing is for fun, so I don't fret about it, unless I have lots of lines running round my brain, and I don't have the opportunity to write them down, but that is more of frustration, or like being on a sugar high.....lol very antsey..(sp?)
Fear.....life stuff, my loved ones safety, my relationship, my daughter's social life lol.......hum.....driving in the snow, down my mountain...
oh boy, didn't realize how paranoid I am lololol
Now I have to think.........
I just may give this one a try
