Well, I don't know how my missed this thread up until now ... but I am absolutely LOVING the idea of a masquerade forum! Believe it or not, I do write in more than iambic heptameter, rofl and over half my earlier poems are free verse.
I'd love to give myself a reason to mix it up some more, and something like this would be a treat, and a real challenge! Prizes or not ... it would just be plain fun! "Tik" would love to play along, Ron!
I think it would be great as a forum unto itself. Perhaps the inevitable hurdles it would take to get this up and running smoothly can be looked at as lessons learned toward fine-tuning a derivative of this for a future voting platform for a new book.
Excellent thread LP, and wonderfully creative ideas pouring out from it. This is great!
