I'll probably get some stick for this (I'm not sure why I write it now) , but I have mixed feelings about what we do here. When I first joined I felt welcomed into a world where we praised and advised each other, and it felt good. Probably too good, and that's the problem. Everyone was so kind and I found some genuinely good stuff too, but it wasn't long before I slipped (and rested on what laurels I thought I had) and only wrote what I thought would be well received. I haven't posted anything for a long time, .. I guess I felt awkward about what I was doing here. There is a mutual back-slapping culture here but usually it's good honest critique and support, so I'm not knocking it, and I'm aware that I can piss off whenever I like. I just feel a bit lost and in need of something more... something to kick up the community backside. Has anybody else felt this way ever? I stand by it all... one of your own, SJ

An interesting form I came across a year or so ago is the Terzanelle. It's a cross between the Terza Rima and the Villanelle; and is one of the most recent hybrid forms I know of, though it's probably been used for some time now. It's easy to find if you google it, with a form breakdown and examples.
