Riddle me this, Batman....
Statcounter's Keyword Analysis tells me that since I started my blog in August 2008, I have the most hits from people searching for Riddle Poems and Acrostic Poems, yet there are barely any Riddle Poem or Acrostic Poem collections on the bookshelves.
These Riddle Poem and Acrostic Poem-hungry readers land on my lessons of how to write and teach these forms plus they get a mini-helping of my original poetry---and I'll be honest, I don't put my best work up on this blog because that is the work I plan to sell to publishers.
So, why the editor resistance to student-loved Riddle and Acrostic Poems?
BTW, I also receive a lot of Haiku-hungry searchers who land on my two Haiku lesson posts. Haiku is huge in the classroom and I am thrilled to see the success of Wabi Sabi, Zen Ties, If Not for the Cat, and more.
