I would love to know, how do you write poetry and find inspiration?

I have always wrote at the most unexpected times, a moment of introspection seizes me upon my day, a few lines of formulated words and an idea, transpires in the inner workings of my subconscious and pops into the front of my head unannounced. I have constructed all of my poetry this way, jotting it down on scrap pieces of paper, receipts, the back of envelopes, whatever may be hand at the time. For if I didn’t it would be like a dream I remembered in the morning that simply slipped from my mind, before I had the opportunity to write it down.

I had always envisioned as a child that a writer would sit masterfully at their desk, something I wish I could aspire to some day. I can never know when I may write again. Or whether editing my first draft from its raw form will “butcher” it by being overworked.

Please comment below, How do you write?, what inspires you?

  1. Its nice to know… how you go about writing..
    I sail in the same way too… I write as and when my thoughts propel, else I have general tendency to forget, blame it either on my memory, or my lovely kids, who steal my attention.
    But , yes, thanks to technology,, I scribble immediately my hands are free.. in my mobile.. till then, I cache my words.

  2. I just listen to that inner voice. There are times that what I write does not make any sense to me, but one part of me pushes me to write it. In a sense, I only write what needs to come out. When it comes to inspiration, I guess my experiences in these maze we call life is more than enough for now.

  3. I get inspiration from things that happen in my life or from things i watch on TV….or maybe when I’m listening to music,i just imagine things and begin to write….all the stories on my blog are not written anywhere. I just stay and type them that’s all😂😂.
