Writing a sonnet a day keeps the mediocrity away

No really, I'm not saying my sonnets are good, but the practice of writing in form: 14 lines of rhymed iambic pentameter; has been teaching me to better manipulate language to express a notion. I'm getting better at not creating syntax contorted sentences to achieve rhymes. I'm realizing there's a multitude of ways to say nearly the same thing, huge strength of English with its plethora of words. I'm getting more limber and friends tell me the writing has gotten better. I'm so pleased I finally attempted something I always thought was too hard ! The practice is the process.
