About Debra Squyres
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoHello to all:

I am called Debra from the great state of Louisiana. I started writing poems in 2010, though I had written a few as a young squirt many, many...years ago

I have trouble wrapping my mind around the idea that I might just be a poet...but as a writer of poems, perhaps I should accept the title given. 

I have had no formal training and it shows at times, though I do venture out of free verse sometimes to broad my skill and to also plump up a few brain cells lol

Punctuation is my nemesis (yes I had to look up the spelling lol) as well as spelling at times.  I offer my words to those who wish to read in hopes of leaving a smile, a thought, a new idea or simply a verse or two to make one smile. 

Blessings to each of you and many thanks to those who drop by my offerings of poetic verse. Know I will drop by your offerings as well.

Blessed be !! 

The "About this poem" selection...???

     Help please !!   Once again lol

     I was under the impression that having a premium membership I would be able to pull up the "about this poem" selection on the poets pages.  I have found that even if the poet makes a note that says to read more about this under "about this poem" I still can't see it. 
    
     Perhaps I am doing something wrong??  Perhaps this is only for life time membership?? or Perhaps the poet has taken it down??  

    I've tried to find a way to post in the section also on my poems and have found no way to do so. I am sure the answer is obvious and I'll be terribly embarassed at the simple explanation .... but I'm asking anyway !!!   

    I'm not yet to old to learn a new trick or two....I hope !! 


Thank you for your time !!!

    no idea why you aren't seeing anything when they've posted there is something in the "about this poem" section, its a mystery. To post in that section yourself just under the area where you have written your poem is another big box to write in, anything (text or pictures) you put in that box should come up on the "about this poem" section of your poem.I know that I can never post a photo there unless I've added the photo to my "My photos" section then copy and paste .Good luck, send TPS a soupmail and I am sure they will help
