I enjoy your work, Claudette, & feel we have a lot in common. For starters, I am a retired editor of college textbooks living in NYC. More to the point, I am a poet who paints in both words & pictures. Years ago I had one haiku accepted by Tinywords. Perhaps I'll try again.
Being a writer can be tough, and we all need encouragement. All I can say is enjoy the challenge, write hundreds of drafts and keep working on them, moving them up and down a document of draft poetry, when you decide if they are close enough to submit.
There's an amazing archive of work on tinywords to study. Look forward to seeing your work!
And also packing the unfamiliar, and certainly unpacking the long forgotten. I have three apartments worth and two offices worth of stuff in a small garage and squeezed into my current abode. :-)
