Do we need a reason for this? Bells no!

How many poems have you 'written'? and I put in quotes because the only guide we have is how many you have got paper or electronic copy of.. i.e. how many you have kept.

Here's my numbers:

Short poems (eight lines or less)
55
Longer Poems
147
Unfinished poetry (any length)
8

(And I have to mention with regret the 20 or so short poems that got lost on the return from holiday.. hope whoever found that notebook enjoyed them.)


Oh, ok, and while we are at it.. how many of those published?

Magazine
0
E-zine
0
School Magazine (gosh... years and years and years ago LOL)
2


Submitted
3


Edit: To answer Paint's question below.
Include the Poetry Game if you have taken a copy of the poem for safe keeping into your own 'filesystem'. If it was a throwaway poem then don't include it.

Edit: Good idea pb10220, I've added my stats for Submitted too.

Are you including the Poetry Game?
Actually I have not kept count. I have written poems off and on since I could write.
Over the last year and thanks to this forum about 100. Publishable? Oh, 35 or so.
Published?
Self published (bull-iten boards, jokes, maybe 10)
Work newspaper-4
Submitted? I have no clue, countless. It's something I do all the time, like laundry, hoping to someday connect with the editor of my dreams, a publishing giant who recognizes my many talents, and is willing to pay large sums for the priv...okay enough.
Such is the life of this poet...

Do they count as 'published' if PA is the publisher?
