|Hi Douglas, you might be right. While walking (favorite pastime for letting poems emerge) I was thinking about how scarcity fuels creativity. Usually it means lack of money, but lack of words may work the same way. What do you think ;-)|

|The very thought indeed has passed through my mind lately, but I think it might be difficult to get them published, for these poems are not in my mother tongue and publishers probably won't be eager to publish them for poems never will be bestsellers (unfortunately).|

|I guess those who don't know Dr. Seuss (yes, that's possible) are at a disadvantage this week :-(|

|Thanks for all the inspiration this year, with a new writing prompt every week. It doesn't seem easy to me to think up something new every week for years on end.|
So my new year's wish is for many new writing prompts to come and of course all the best for you and your family.

I must firstly say that you have a great website with genuine writing tips that helped me, and probably many others, to form up a good sense of writing skills.
I'm writing you with a question - How can you make money with Poetry?

I have a story and I want to name it "Dirty". Don't judge the story by it's title. It will be about philosophy, human logic, in a fictional way but nothing like the adult "Dirty" image. I'm still debating adding some romance limited to stalking and a single kiss scene.
I am decent. But I named my draft because I remember the quiz and "Doug is an evil dictator" line. So, I wanted to ask you first if I can name my story "Dirty" the clean way.
Take your time to answer me I'm sure you have a bunch of msg everyday piling up. Let me know as soon as you can.

|Thank you very much -- both for the compliment and the tip! :) I can understand being leery about putting this particular subject-matter in a spotlight (of sorts) -- it IS a bit gruesome. XD|
Anyway -- as for the inclusion of "did", the main reasoning for putting it there was because it was the only way to word things where I could include "stand", and it's simply the line that came out while I was writing. Part of it is the cadence, but I think the biggest part was the necessity of the wording. I'll be looking into ways in which I might fix that, though...

|You should make a prompt having people write riddles!!!! I've been writing a good share of mine and I'm contemplating weather I should post them or not|

|I won't be submitting anything any time soon, Dougllas, as I've gone blind in my dominant eye. Without the ability to see, I've lost my ability to read and write.|

|I'd like to see a section on connotation vs denotation and something dealing with word choice posted here: http://fifteenminutesoffiction.com/articles/writing_basics/word_usage/|
Also, as a new user, loving the site--I'll continue to use it for quite some time.

|I am not sure if my writing under " Alphabet Soup - I" follows the site guidelines for pieces . Could you check it out? I just wanted to be sure before it could lead to getting banned and so i could change it if it needs to be changed thanks|

|Hi! I think a writing prompt about your make-believe pet would be fun.|

|Hey Doug, |
Thanks for the great surprise. I never expected for that piece to be featured, especially so quickly. I'm beyond flattered. Thanks.

|Thanks for the tip. I have editted the spacing and a couple of minor punctuation errors. I'm glad you liked it.|
