72 responses! Goodness! I’ll have to come back to read them. My reading brain is just about done in for the day. I’m not prepared to give away my poetry at this time. I want to be paid for it. I’d like to make a living from my writing. And frankly, I don’t see why I shouldn’t. I suppose if a writer already has a livelihood the need to generate revenue from their writing isn’t as imperative. This is a difficult discussion. I have to read the other comments.
