PAST TIPS

 

Writer's Block

Keep a Journal, or keep a file of interesting short stories, articles and pictures that interest you.  When you can't think of anything to write about, pour through your clippings. Something in your collection is sure to stimulate your  poetic interest. 

Think over the article or pic, what is the emotion, what is the vision and setting.  Asking a few questions can often be enough to form an idea for your next poem. 

 

 

To write a 'bad' poem is better than no poem at all.

Always Proof-read!

Poetry must undergo many revisions in order to shine.

Stick to your topic.

Make every word count.

THE COMMA
use and abuse


Lay vs lie

 

Lay, laying, laid

Lie, lying, lay
