Introduction

Friday, July 16, 2010

Hi, My name is Janet. I have always written...mostly short stories or detailed memories. About three months ago I started going to a poetry therapy group. We write on Monday nights. Since then I have written 43 poems. Most of it very dark but I am writing on the lighter side of things at times. I lost 100 pounds 2 years ago and stopped working on it. I have gained back 20. So after a two year rest I am ready to tackle another 100. The poetry really helps to get some of the pain out. I am looking to publish a book in the near future.

    Phat prose...what I good idea. I wish I was talented enough to let it out in poetry. Too many years of scientific writing here...

    Glad to see you back! You have achieved so much already - you can continue that! I used to write too - I've been thinking it might be time to start again. Good luck with that also!!

    Welcome. I lost 120+ pounds 5 years ago and then gained back 145! So you are doing much better than I did.

I'll look forward to hearing about your journey.
