Through another fan fiction writer on Wattpad, I read about a poetry contest on Wattpad that closes in four days. We were to write and post a "Manifesto Poem" which I did, along with another poem.
Both "Tone-Deaf?" and "Trailing Fingertips" ended up tonight ranked in the top poems, the former at #16 and the latter at #48.
I was also surprised to see both poems on Wattpad's "What's Hot" list today, "Tone-Deaf?," which I entered in the contest, at #232 and "Trailing Fingertips," which I also posted on FanFiction.net, in #644.
I posted the latter as an AU from BPOV set a century after her marriage to Edward and transformation into a vampire. I thought I'd post it here for you as well:
Trailing Her Fingertips...
"True love lasts forever,"
trailing her fingertips
through their years.
Theirs had been the tale often told:
into binding cords,
cutting her delicately
if she struggled--
the scars unseen.
Unless, of course,
one gently gauged
the depths of her eyes....
But no one did.

So I'm hoping to bring more attention to my poetry and perhaps win a contest at Wattpad, and also bolster my FanFiction.net postings.
I've received some really great comments today which is nicely encouraging, considering I'm still sick in bed after being down with a flu bug all week....
And some Pinned but Fluttering news.... It's remained at #1 on Wattpad's Thriller category and now edged into the Top Ten Fan Fictions at #10, also a new record.
I think I'm pinching myself...again.
