I enjoyed your review of the Middleton night, Peter. It is great to get participants' comments - especially when they are so positive.

Thanks Peter, I am well again. Depression is bad thing to have but when the switch turns back on life is great. I have made contact with my daughter and friends again and back in a routine and writing poetry too. I don't do this when down.
I am due to read on Bishop FM soon. I am taking part in a reading of Anglo Saxon Poetry at Escomb 12th Century Saxon Church on 7th Sept as part of Lindarsfarne gospels events. I read a poem at The Puthon Gallery in Middlesbrough on Friday night. You may have heard of the poets Mandy Maxwell and Nominally known as Morbid. Anyway I have put the poem on sound cloud. Cheers....

Hello Pete - I go along with writing "off the cuff" as it were. Often too much thinking at the outset can interrupt the "flow". However, once the main body of the poem is set down, it is a good idea to go through it - and more than once - to see if some judicious "editing" might improve the odd word or line. Nothing wrong in that. The theme of "Shadows" is touching - and its execution is excellent. One of my recent favourites on this site.

An accidental poet, eh? Pleased to make your acquaintance, from a fellow accidental poet. I hadn't written a line until September 2010 but you can't bloody stop me now ;) Good to see you are enjoying the site - I know that I wouldn't have written anywhere near as much as I have without it.
Do you use Facebook at all? We have a Write Out Loud Community page on there, and once a month, our friend Cathy Bryant puts up huge lists of comps and calls for publishing. Even if you don't send anything, they can be great 'prompts' for new poems.
Ooops - meant to give you the link https://www.facebook.com/pages/Write-Out-Loud-Community/260122457345775?fref=ts
We do writing exercises on here once a month too - look out for the next one, mid-month.
Here's another challenge for you, from a previous exercise: http://www.writeoutloud.net/public/blogentry.php?blogentryid=33608
Let me know if you write one eh? :)

HI Pete - just a thought -you seem to be blogging several poems at a time and I think this site archives a poem when you upload the next one so we don't get time to read the earlier ones as there's only the latest one up on show ( they also get archived on a monthly basis) I don't access the site every day so I've missed loads of yours ( I'm accessing them via your profile page.

Hi Pete thanks for your message. I enjoy your style of poetry and am looking forward to a poem about repossession ( no pressure there then! ) Keep blogging. XX
