My first anthology. Which sin are you accused of?
Hello, my blogging family,
Recently I started working on my anthology of poems about the seven deadly sins. However, it started with me writing a poem about jealousy and while I was nearing the end of it, it just crossed my mind to do the whole series about the seven deadly sins. I’ve never worked on an anthology before and this is my first humble attempt, so I’m really apprehensive about it. As always, I expect the support and constructive feedback from my community, which makes me a better writer by each passing day.
I’m planning to publish a poem daily for the next seven days.Hoping, I would be able to live up to the expectation of my readers.
As I keep publishing, I’ll keep updating the links to the posts below.
