I envy you, Kim! I've been hoping for that red and white checkmark for over a year. I read those two, though, and can clearly see why you deserved them. would you Look at a thing or two of mine? I'd love to hear some advice from you.

I love all your poems! I do know why they you haven't gotten Editors Choice though.  My friend who is a super awesome poet (Regards to Izzy!) taught me this only days before I joined this site.  Your poems need to connect with other people, you need to create a sense of empathy with your audience. Like my poem Oxygen, it originally was written about me, but I changed it to include everyone.  I don't think you should change any of your poems to please other people, only do it if it makes sense to you, and it still shows the feelings you want it too.

Is it common to get Editor's Choice in your first week? I noticed most of the people who get Editor's Choice are VIP's...
