Technically speaking " professional" means you make money from your art, trade, or writing..... right?
I write but for myself. If I could write poems (or books) that others wanted to read that would be great. If I could make a living writing, that would be a dream come true.
But how rare is it that a poet actually earns a living writing? I think pretty darned rare. (Although I do " get" the difference intended in the original message regarding substance vs. emotional writing) Substance is what keeps me reading a piece whereas emotional writing will lose me midsteam.....especially love poems. But then I'm just that jaded sort of cynic.
