My sonnet, 'Winding Down', which was in the Monday Flash mix last year (September 10th), is a Laureate's Choice prize winner in the 2019 Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest. $30 to boot.

Should I admit I wrote it in a bar one night? Probably not.

Sweet win, Wombat! Writing in a bar is no shame at all!

Do you tap your fingers on the table as you run through it in your mind, so as not to offend those around you? I love that image. Mr. Green Considerate tipsy genius at work! Well done.

Actually, I have a silver ring with an agate stone in it. I turn the ring around on my finger and tap out the beat.

It was extremely useful when I wrote my Canterbury Tales.

Cheers all!
