I tried writing a piece from the opposite sex's point-of-view. I was warned ahead of time that I should not do so-stick to what I know. The feedback was mixed. The HP# dropped. Still, I found the exercise to be interesting and challenging. What I mainly learned from the experience was that it is difficult to write from the opposite sex's point-of-view, but it was also lots of fun. And that I am proud that I was willing to at least give it a try.

I enjoy listening to Billie Collins. To be such a celebrated & contemporary poet, his take on the process is very down to earth. He strikes me as the sort of poet who would encourage experimentation. It's hard, but to try is worth one's time.
"I crack the whip and then rush around to receive the blow." CLASSIC!
How I can relate. I do not know that I am as confident about my potential; however, I will keep trying and do hope to see my work improve. I'll keep practicing! Thank U!
You have accomplished more in four years than I have in forever. What is the name of your eBook and poetry book? I would love to feel that "You did it!" feeling. And your secret is safe with me. Smiles. Thanks for responding. Love, Kim
Let me clarify the "mixed" comment. As soon as I received the first comment, my HP# dropped after staying the same forever--which is what made me think-"mixed." Thanx for understanding my goal was to challenge myself. May we all cont. to explore.
Did you mean your profile score dropped or Hub Score because my Profile Score dropped yesterday too, just when I thought I might even get a chance to have a 100 for the first time. I think it was a co-incidence, not anything to do with the Hub.
The # located with my avatar. Is that my profile score or my Hub Score? I am embarrassed to say I do not know the difference, or that there were two different scores. Just seemed odd that the ?score dropped aft comment when been so dormant forever
Your Profile or Avatar score is different from your Hub Score. The hub score shown on your account summary. Each hub has a score next to it but there is an average score at the bottom. Of course I could be wrong but I don't think so.
You have been such a great help supporting my creative endeavors and providing me tech help as well. You would think I would know these things by now. I view the account page, but it's the profile score that I noticed most often b/c of its location
You are very welcome - I am glad I was able to help. It takes a longtime to understand the ins and outs of these Pages.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I consider most of my work to be really awful. There are only few pieces I really feel that great about. And there are lots I have written and kept to myself which I agree helps to free one up. Thanx
Thank you for all your kind words and encouragement. Coming from one I admire so much makes your support even more appreciated. I only know how to be me. I enjoy the challenge of trying new forms. Plus, writing for me is therapy. Blessings to you
Thanks for responding. You are an inspiration. I think it is important to grow as a person and a writer. I like that you encourage us to develop and in a positive light.
I applaud your enthusiasm and self-confidence. I know I will keep trying to improve, but I am not as confident about how much I should expect to achieve.
Thanks for responding.
