kingdom for telling me repeatedly, "you can do this" and daring me to
raise the bar.

- Greetings from Linette!
I agree with other posters that M.B. Greenstein's critique was thoughtful
and fairly gentle.
However, it's not clear whether Alwyn wanted any critique, and so now I'm
asking: Alwyn, what is your purpose in posting your pieces? I've checked
the archive, and all of your posts have been posting your original
poetry. Are you requesting critiques, or just posting to share? Most of
your pieces are not especially medieval or Renaissance in style - are you
striving to create works that will work for the SCA? I see on your website
that you're part of a circle of pagan poets, and that seems to be a focus
of your poetry. Have you any comments that would help clear up your
desires regarding your posts, so the list can better help you one way or
I applaud everyone who is brave enough to share their original work - I
know how intimidating that can be, from personal experience! Please,
folks, let's keep an encouraging atmosphere here on the list - disparaging
remarks of the sort I've seen from other posters are really not appropriate
for the stated goals of the list.
