It's been quite some time since I was active on any forum, and after checking out some writing forums, I decided to join "the" writing forums. I'm not sure why I joined or even looked for a forum for writers. I used to write almost every day for several years, and I guess I'm not so happy with not writing. So I've decided to pick up writing, with the intention of making something serious out of it. I want to explore different genres, different types of writing - poetry in particular. I've become increasingly interested in exploring the power of words rather than the power of stories. What can you tell in less than fifty words? How much can you convey in a single verse? I'm hoping to find inspiration among those who share my interest.
