Thanks for reminding all of us of things we would all do well to remember!  Good work!  A very helpful checklist!  (That takes care of numbers 1 and 10 on your list--oh, and this little aside takes care of 19, too!  Looks like I'm on a roll!  I don't seem to be doing at all badly so far today! lol)

Awesome list!

Ramona this is a brilliant checklist for the poet or writer...Just brilliant!
And very eloquently presented too...obviously you've applied you're own advice.

A great work to share with us all~
