doris1022: has anyone ever had a book printed just for themselves...if so what printer do you use for a good quality book binding.
February 3, 2013 at 9:29AM
    Julia.: I haven't printed a book just for myself, but I have ordered books from both Create Space and Lulu. Both sites seem to provide decent quality paperbacks. I think both use Lightning Source for printing so that would make sense.

As she dances on the moonlit glen
Taking in the freshness of the air
She is alone, but not lonely
She is surrounded by spirits
Taking in the freshness of the air
Searching again for her silent companions
She is surrounded by spirits
They watch the contentment she holds
Searching again for her silent companions
She is alone, but not lonely
They watch the contentment she holds
As she dances on the moonlit glen

November 9, 2012 at 5:43PM
    DIS-illusioned: Oh, that poetic form--the Footle? ... No, can't say I have, sorry. :-p
    November 9, 2012 at 6:46PM
    adewpearl: never heard of it, but I Googled it and found several websites with definition and examples
    November 9, 2012 at 10:59PM
    shelley kaye: google it.... here's what i found.... "A footle is a two line 2 syllable verse with an integral title. Light Poetic verse form, witty, pertinent, topical, etc. (technically a trochaic monometer). it was inspired by the famous FLEAS Adam/had'em."

    November 10, 2012 at 12:39PM
    doris1022: Thank you, for the information. It is a fun try. Anyone have a try of footles?

doris1022: My son got his first 8 point buck last night I am proud for him and excited for him. He has been trying for a while. We had it processed to eat and the ones we don't need we give to charity. One less pea eater on the property. one less tree destroyer.

doris1022: Is it offensive to get a 4 or 4.5 rating? not every poem is perfect...right?
October 20, 2012 at 8:14PM
    nor84: There are no 4.5 ratings. Four stars means "good, adjustments needed. The reviewer should tell the writer what changes are needed.
    October 20, 2012 at 9:10PM
    redrider6612: You should definitely support any rating below 5 with suggestions for improvement. The sandwich method works best--positive remarks/suggestions for improvement/positive remarks--though you will still get backlash from the touchy poets. If they snap at you, report them--that kind of behavior is against site rules.
    October 21, 2012 at 12:14AM
    doris1022: Thanks for the info. Have a great week!
    October 22, 2012 at 4:48PM
