Tripped across your articles. Congratulations on your tackling the sonnet form. Don’t give up – it really can be freeing. 🙂
If you, or anyone who asks, would like conversation about writing sonnets, I enjoy talking about the form and teaching the writing of them. One of my websites is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chivalry_is_yet-a-guide/
which has many of my past efforts archived.
As far as the practicality of it all, in addition to doing commissions for romantically inclined couples, I was asked by New Zealand screenwriter Guy Hamling to put his screenplay (VERONA) into iambic pentameter a few years ago. It was a great deal of fun and produced a worthy piece – well, Guy liked it, anyway:-)
Best of fortunes to you, in pentameter or out.
