Friday Favorites-The Reluctant Poet

Welcome to another post of my Friday Favorites!  I’m sorry that I skipped last Friday, but with being smack dab in the middle of the holidays, I suspect you understand.  My goal, each Friday, is to bring you a little information about a Favorite Blogger of mine.  Check them out and they may just become a favorite of yours too!

Chuck, at The Reluctant Poet is a favorite blogger of mine for several reasons.  The reason that I originally connected with Chuck is because he writes some of the most amazing and beautifully romantic poetry!  THIS  is an example of what I mean.  Be sure to browse thru Chuck’s archives, you’ll find a treasure trove from a talented poet!

Because of Chuck’s style of poetry (romantic), I felt that he would be the perfect Beta Reader for a book of poetry that I was (and still am) thinking about having published.  Chuck graciously accepted my request and gave me some wonderful critiques!

Chuck has become a friend as well as another talented blogger in my Reader feed.  He’s gracious and generous.  Chuck is currently working on a book project of his own.  Because he is so busy with this, he generously reblogs other people’s posts that he likes.  Because of his kindness, a lot of posts are shared and exposed to many more readers than they usually would be.

I don’t want you to miss out on this man’s talent!  THIS  is another example of his romantic side. 

Chuck calls himself the “Reluctant Poet”.  But, no doubt, he IS a poet.  Please take a few minutes and explore Chuck’s blog.  You’ll be glad that you did!

      1. Would you like some unpublished things to read from time to time?? I don’t like having to hold things, but everyone considers posting on WP as being published and removes the chance of having it published.
