Cent Poésies: La Régle du Jeu [100 poems: the rules of the game]
- A poem is a poem if you write it so. No one can tell you otherwise. - A poem can be in any language, or in any form; whether you speak that language or not. - A poem is never finished, never perfect. What ever you submit is where it is at at the moment, nothing more. - All poems are open to critique or criticism. But keep comments to yourself, unless the poet ask. - Words of encouragement and support are always in short supply. - One hundred poems in one hundred days does not mean 'a poem a day' though that is perhaps what we all may like. The goal is a measured step. Reality often begs to differ. Do what works best for you. - Personal accounting is a must. (I recommend prefacing your poem with a counter, such as: poem 34, day 33) - Others cannot tell you when you're done. One hundred may be too much for you now. Or too little. - It is not a race or a competition, merely a shared striving towards common goals. - Some of us will start late, or finish early. Who is to put absolute time limits on creativity.
