I Did Better Than I Thought

via Letters from NYC comes this little quiz. I made two mistakes ; as with one of them I had checked the right answer first then reconsidered and choose the wrong answer I would say; " always go with your first instinct", but the other one I got wrong I had briefly considered changing to what would be the right answer, shooting that fish is out of the water.

Anyway, I think the quiz is more about th contest than showing great poetry knowledge, but it was fun.

I was really suprised I did so well. I couldn't believe I still remembered that stuff. Normally people only use that knowledge in Grad School and after that there's no use for it unless you're teaching Senior HS or an intro College English Class.

But you're right, it was fun!

BTW, where poetry contests make their money is in the printing of the first 1000 contest winner's poems. They ask you to pay $500 to 800 for the poem(s) to be bound in a deluxe edition book set.
