I can say: steady growth with poetry, because of practice with blogs. I also read blogs, books, and poetry print journals. Reading is an important part of growing as a writer, as many have observed. Practice helps with “confidence level.” Always more to learn, a poem can be revised, and an editor may have a good idea.
And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us:
and establish thou the work of our hands upon us;
yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
Psalm 90: 17
