Bloggers PhotoHere all this time, had a note saying coming soon. Semi Retired Carpenter, and Disability. For me, I have been writing for 20+ yrs. My inspiration was my 7th grade English teacher. Had a bit of a troublesome childhood. My own family lost belief in me and I had lost all hope. Until my 7th grade English teacher talked to me, insure my success in her class and hopefully on down. That's it. But, became a union carpenter. Had a family, 5 kids, 4 boys and 1 girl. Wife is long ago passed on now, may she rest in peace. Takes care everyone, thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day. Best of Wishes, William

Best Money I Spent By Far

Blog Posted:5/8/2020 7:13:00 AM

Well, I don't know of anyone else, but, that's was the best money I've spent by far.  said I would focus more on my writing, and I aim to claim it. A sense of accomplishment was achieved. Even went a new laptop I've been wanting to do also.  Ahh...Life is good, when persistence is in the equation. Now, I'll go on and write my story. And, I miss me.

Best of Wishes,

Welcome to Poetrysoup, William:-) You've made a sagacious decision joining this site, which is the best poetry site there is, in my opinion! I started writing poetry in 2006 but gave it up cold turkey when I lost a poetry book(with approximately 136 poems) I wanted to publish in 2009. Fortunately, I picked it back up during the recession of 2014 but began taking it seriously again when I stumbled upon this wonderful site in mid-2016! I hope you participate in my "Pick-A-Title" contests. I'm basically giving away all the never-recreated titles from that lost book! Also, I hope you get to try poetry form I invented, Yalto(the first letter of the first names of really important people in my life)

You'll soon learn. A tragic event happened to my family and I turned away from life and led a life of drugs, trying to make it disappear or myself. But, as it sits, had a very long conversation with God for 22 years. But thank you for you humbling words. I look forward to knowing you all a little better. Have a beautiful day everyone. Best of Wishes, William

Welcome, William - I've only been writing (and here at PS) since very late 2016, so don't really feel qualified to speak as a veteran member, but I am encouraged when anyone jumps right in with a blog - the courage I lack, (I think I swam around in anonymity for almost a year, lol), but admire! Blessings on your personal writing journey - I pray it will be as joyous as mine has been, and that you will find the same wealth of friends here that I have. Fair winds and following seas, Mate! (Drop me a Soupie anytime!) ;o)

Thank you very much Gregory. No matter how far up the chain as writer's poets, I believe we could all help each other as well. Very encouraging words you spelled out there, I'm grateful. Have a great day, and expect that mail in your soup! lol Best of Wishes, William.

William, becoming a member of PS was the best money I ever spent too, I have been a member since about 2008, was gifted a Life Time Membership about a year after. I left for a bit, deleted all my poetry(that's another story) then back (because I had a lifetime) at full speed since 2012 and enjoying it so much, I love to write and share my poetry and sponsor contests, happy writing and enjoy that life time membership, you are set for life now _ Constance

Why, thank you, Constance. I started 2013, but wasn't really active. Was a dark time for me then, and I didn't want to be there. Feel even more strongly about the actions I've taken, for the past year. And thank you, again.

Hi Mark, Thank you very much, and duly noted. Oh yeah, my story, is one that needs to be written, for my self-conviction. Enough is, enough! But, thank you again for your encouragement, Mark. I look forward to likewise. Best of Wishes, William
