    Good luck! I am always amazed that working on a manuscript – as opposed to individual poems – takes so much dedicated concentration and some serious organizational skills and more time than I usually allow. Being a poet is real work, after all – those books just don’t arrange themselves! Thank you for being so encouraging! Here’s to a book-happy holiday!

It showed me the words used most often, as well as other words I used in the periphery.  I pulled some new lines from the generator and this gave me a new way of thinking about the poem, which resulted in a revised poem with a related focus.
