Annie Ranting

I just do not understand people who have the need to tell you, in a rude way,all the things they think are wrong with your poetry. now I am the first to admit that I do not take criticism well, but I am not as bad as I used to be. No really I’m not, if I get a negative comment, I read it and forget it. I do not except everyone to like what I write. But today is not a good day, not a good month and this guy pissed me off.

Comment he sent me on Kaleidoscope; content self indulgent, poem lacks in grammar, rhyme and punctuation. This I just could not read and forget, for a number of reasons. First the poem is free verse, the jerk should have known that. Self indulgent, well isn’t most poetry self indulgent? we write about our life, how we feel, happy, sad, love, hate, that’s what we do. Grammar and punctuation, ok that is a whole different rant and for another day. just one thing, if I want to say me instead of I, I will. I also told him, I didn’t ask for his opinion and do not need his approval. what I really wanted to say, I can’t say here. I checked out his profile, he did not have one poem posted.

Thank you, I just had to get that out of my system or I was going to rip him a new one!

  1. I wouldn’t even consider that criticism. Just a lame uninformed comment. Some people still have a very archaic view of what poetry is and isn’t. Do your thing the way you feel is best, that’s all that matters.

    1. Thank you for your support, it was not on here it was on all poetry. Most days something like that , I could care less. He just got me on a bad day, he is lucky I didn’t go off on him. Well I did go off a little lol…….

  2. Rant all you want. Poetry, especially free verse allows you to break all the rules. Unfortunately, there will always be haters in the world and lately more of these frustrated Facebook idiots have migrated to WordPress.
    Stay inspired and write whatever your heart desires. And don’t let one mental midget ruin your experience.

    1. Thank you my friend, and I won’t. I really do just read them and forget them, but every once in a while some jerk will get me on a bad day and I just want to rip off his head. It was not on here, it was on all poetry, I knew he was a idiot when he said rhyme. I guess there are still people who think if it doesn’t rhyme it is not a poem. Mental midget, love that!

    1. Thank you so much Stuart, I know I should not let one negative comment get to me and most of the time I don’t. Just was not in the mood to let it slide today. It was not on here, it was on all poetry, I have never had any problems on wordpress.

  3. This guy obviously doesn’t understand poetry. You go get him girl. I personally like your style and have for a pretty long time. You just keep on writing Anne.
