I’m not sure if anyone in particular has been following my attempts but I’ve been trying to get into the ‘zone’, I think, of writing little poems. I took a creative writing class when I was in my final year of my undergraduate (honestly, it was the only class I was remotely interested in that year) and it kind of got me interested in trying to develop my own poems, or little rambles, as I like to call them! At the moment, I’ve only been able to write very short pieces of poetry but I’ve been quite proud so far of what I’ve pieced together, it’s a little therapeutic if I’m honest.
I’m hoping to, eventually, be able to write a longer piece. They don’t really roll out of my brain and onto paper just yet which is something, I hope, I might be able to do in time, they’re a bit forced right now. Most of them have been inspired by personal things in my life or a little influenced from past experiences but I’ve been experimenting a bit more recently with characters, like trying to put myself into the mindset of someone else and writing from their point of view…this has been a bit tricky though!
Feel free to read a few of them though, and offer some constructive criticism (please be nice). If anyone has any nice tips or tricks they’d like to pass on too that’d be great, I’m still a newbie in the poetry world so I’d like all the help available!! I read recently that often with poetry, it is the thing you’re afraid to write about that you should write about, which is encouraging me to write a lot more, so more tips like that would be lovely. ❤
