Do you agree with this Robert Frost Quote?

“Writing free verse is like playing tennis with the net down.” Robert Frost

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.

  1. Like the prior reader, I don’t write poetry so am ill-equipped to answer. I’m guessing the heart of it is whether you write better with structure. If I were to write a poem, I’d assume that for me the structure would be critical. Who knows, maybe some day when my muse is playing coy, and I can’t get inspired to write anything for my current novel, I’ll give a short poem a try.
