Of Muse and Pen


I suspect most poets write poems about writing, and I am no different. When I was developing and refining my writing skills, I focused on writing techniques, the forms of poetry, the use of language and sound—the nuts and bolts of poetry. Although it was a useful exercise to write poems about writing, many of the results were mediocre or too egoistic to have much meaning for anyone else. Over the years, I have culled the worst of these several times, and the ones I couldn’t quite bring myself to throw away have found their way into this collection.

Angus the Mage

This contains the four books of the Angus the Mage series (The Tiger's Eye, The Viper's Fangs, The Golden Key, and Angst) along with The Drunken Wizard's Playmates and Other Stories.

The poems range from general commentaries on writing to frustrations I’ve had in learning specific poetic techniques; the joyful burst of inspiration to lamentations when it fizzles to dust; the arduous, annoying process of submitting poetry for publication to the self-indulgent pleasure of having them accepted. In other words, it covers the broad spectrum of writing poetry.
