[color=blue][size=3] Hello, I am archangel, AKA Michael. I first started writing poetry spasmodically, 40 odd years ago whilst at school. Life soon interfered and the writing became even more spasmodic. 30 quiet years, except for special occasions. Writing has always been for self only, except for the special occasions; memorials, personals and of course, falling in love. I have only been back to regular writing in the last few years, and have only really started sharing it in the last two years. I did study English Literature for one year in my high school days. Apart from that I have no formal education or training in writing poetry. It is simply something that comes from inside somewhere. There is little intectual interference in the process, and for that reason, the standard is not all that good; but it is still primarily for me, so technical and literary standards are not an overiding factor for me. (Whatever the words ‘good’, ‘technical’ and ‘literary’ may really mean) If someone takes something from my writing, then that for me is a bonus. I am interested these days, in what others think of my writing, and that is the main reason I am here. This interest is academic, as opposed to making any money; though that would be nice. I am working also, on a couple of novels; again out of interests sake; and it is very early days in that regard. Poetry is my love; reading and writing, and I am a member of a couple of FB poetry groups. I enjoy them very much.

I am from Australia. My professional background is military, education, training and electronics. I have a Degree in Education from the University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Apart from spasmodic electrical work for one of my son’s companies, I am officially retired from the workforce.

I look forward to my time on here and would like to thank 12mimi22 and StarLizard for encouraging and helping me join and register.

Thankyou Star, I am looking forward to working out how everything works, and getting feedback on my submissions. I have had a couple of discussion points so far and that was good. Thankyou.
