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?
