  1. That’s wonderful! I’m sorry I was not able to be s recepient of all those poetic verses shared out loud. Congratulations! You inspire me.

  2. I've experienced having my writing rejected and learned how to bounce back from rejection. That's probably one of the greatest skill you'll need to succeed in writing or life.resume template
