THE POET’S SURVIVAL GUIDE 4
The fourth ebook in the popular series just for poets continues with “Active Duty!” Are you a poet? Is it tough surviving life as a poet? Do people still look at you funny when you say you are one? Do they want you to write toasts for their weddings or love poems? What does it mean to be a poet? In this offering, you will learn that “Yes, You Are a Poet!” Plus more on being a performance artist, persistence, how to refresh your poetic skills, and use poetry to help others. Plus there’s the bonus of more Secret Poetry Weapons – skills to keep your life
as a poet (no matter what you may or may not do for a living!)
From Chapter 5: Persistence:
“Is it hard to be a poet? Oh yes!
How many people look at you funny
(that aren’t writers or poets themselves)
when you say you are one? Besides the
fact, you won’t find many readers of it
anyway they will wonder just what it is
you do and then the next inevitable
question will be do you make a living
with it. You have to live, breathe, eat,
sleep poetry to be a poet. If you
don’t know what that means, are you
living up to your true poetical nature?

People don’t drive cars through buildings –
that’s what I used to laugh and say when I
would see it on TV or in the movies. A few
days before, I had seen a movie, a comedy,
where a car drove through a building and
I had said that never happens – people
don’t drive through buildings. But then,
then it happened to me. I wasn’t in the
car. I was in the building. This is my
story … “Life after Wreck” a memoir
