Well put Leonard. I've been a journalist (broadcast and print), magazine
editor/publisher, marcom writer, copywriter, freelance writer, and technical
writer for over 40 years and I have yet to delve into poetry. Why? For the
reasons both Leonard and Steve Janoff stated.....it's too hard. As I slide
into retirement, my writing will move away from the heavy technical
material, but not into poetry.
