It's hard to say. After I got my MFA (in novel), I started going to the annual alumni workshops, and they involved a lot of prompts (the opening event of the workshop each year was "Stations of the Word," which involved a bunch of ten-minute prompts). Some of those prompts came out as poems, and I now had buddies who were poets who encouraged me to revise, and showed me how. So I discovered that I had some small gift for concision. And I guess I liked being able to finish a project in a week or two instead of a couple of years.
