Village Books Poetry Group is a fine place to bring in a PIP = poem in progress. Last Thursday I shared this new poem “PEW” with my group. One line in the poem started an interesting conversation. The line is “Mid service she wiggles like bacon in a hot pan”. Some thought it didn’t fit, others said it was “an incredible turning point”.

Whether you write, non-fiction, fantasy, novels or poems, I encourage you to seek out a writing group. If there isn’t one in your area, start one.
Here is my poem in it’s original form:
