I spent time today going over [livejournal.com profile] finnchuill's poetry manuscript again and doing a little more editing. I sent off my comments to him about half an hour ago. I hope the comments were helpful. Poetry is such a personal endeavor that it can be hard to do justice to for editing. A lot of it is really sharing an opinion on something, to be taken or left. I did ask a few questions toward clarifying things I wasn't sure of, and perhaps that will be good enough.

Most of the poems were in the praise and invocatory genre. A few of them didn't feel like they fit in the collection, and I noted that, as well. They felt much more like personal poems than poems about or addressed to deity, which was the bulk of the work. I figure if a collection is going to have a theme, it should probably stick to the theme, rather than having just a few that didn't fit in well. They were good poems, just not a good fit with the rest of the manuscript.

Tomorrow I'm down to Seattle for my weekly group.
