Guest Contributor at Carmen Ruggero’s

Guest Contributor at Carmen Ruggero's The Yarn Spinner:::::::::::::::::::::
READ ON ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

            My good friend, talented and prolific poet Carmen Ruggero, did me the honor of inviting me to be
Guest Contributor at her author’s site, The Yarn Spinner.
I said “Naaaaaa.”   (continued below)

 
               You know better!    I am thrilled!  
 
               Despite having worked two l2-hour days in a row,
Carmen Ruggero took the trouble to  post a comment
about my poetry at Poetry Life & Times.   Then she
trumped herself by offering me a  spot as Guest
Contributor on her site.   In less time that it takes
to look up onomatopoeia (hope I spelled it right), three
poems – and a photo, yet – were making themselves at
home at TYS.
 
              “Sidewalks” and “To a Poet’s Poet” are
fresh out of the box.  The previously published  poem,
“Rope Burns,” is very close to my heart, as are
novelists/poets/editors R.C. ‘Bob’ Rutherford and Sara
Claytor of Banner Elk, NC,  who wholeheartedly
welcomed the autobiographical “Rope Burns” into
their fold..  Their electronic magazine,
The Moonwort Review is celebrating its fifth year.
“Clicks” have grown by leaps and bounds.  
Most of you  are writers.  I needn’t tell you
what it feels like to send one of your babies into the world.
Fortunately, there are dedicated literary “foster parents”
who treat adoptees and their “real” parents with
loving care.. In my experience, most editors are
passionate about writing and writers..  Bob and Sara
and countless other editors – if only I could name
them all –  beat back daunting odds to help  make
a tough and sometimes unforgiving profession
seem like a cakewalk.  Okay, not.. What we all
do for love, isn’t it.
 
         If it sounds as if I mean editors who happen
to like my work, ‘t’ain’ so. .  No one loves acceptance
more than a writer, but I can honestly say that among those
who ha ve yet to accept a single piece from me whom I
hold in the highest esteem.  When someone who is swamped
with manuscripts and administrative folderol, working under deadline
and battling  to keep a publication above water
financially drops everything to give a struggling writer
a needed pat or  helpful suggestion, it tells
us that ours is an honorable profession.  A lot
of my writing has been bad.  I should probably
beg for forgiveness.  But you know what?   Every good
editor, like every good writer, know that a mistake
not only teaches, it often leads to a brand new path.
If we writers are lucky, great editors stand at the
gates, holding tickets for those who pay dues..
 
         If we are very, v e r y lucky, fellow and sister
writers take pleasure in our every success and do
everything they can to see that we achieve more.
 
        . . .Carmen Ruggero, for instance.
 
                 Keep Daring to Dream.
                       
                            ‘Pea’<3
