New to poetry on this site... AGAIN.
Writers block are a pain in the rear. I went almost half a year without being able to write anything...! Thank god I finally managed to get something to paper. What do you guys usually do to help with writers block (if you have it?)

Thanks <3

Hi, Ursula. Sorry to hear you are having this problem, but it's one we all suffer from time to time. I'll tell you what usually gets the juices flowing for me: reading the classics. I was reading Emily Dickinson the other day and got all kinds of inspired, like, get me a pen and piece of paper FAST type inspired lol. In addition to Emily, if you are a fan of Keats or Poe or Shelley, peruse some of their work (which you can find here) and also of course everywhere on the web. I also find Radiohead to be a great musical influence. Hope these suggestions help; best of luck

You just have to start writing something,anything. Or you can read other people's poems and while feeling the joy or sharpness in it you will feel inspired to create your own poem that in turn will inspire other writers.

I think it is normal for every writer to undergo such,i often experience it,my way of curing this *disease* is usually by traveling to new places,learn new cultures or a new trade or a hobby,or try something new and challenging!
that way,i always end up getting my inspiration back!
Good luck!
