I gave up sonnetizing many years ago when I couldn't get them to stay at 14 lines. I tried the Petrachean and Shakespearean models and even blank verse, the the silly little buggers either ended up at 15 or 16 lines or shyly pulled back to 13 or even 10. And the last couplet never would hold still long enough to rhyme.
