I need some writing inspiration!

Blog Posted:11/21/2012 9:08:00 PM
Feeling ....well actually I am 'Time Pressured' right now...and have been for some weeks and I have struggled to write a poem. ..... It's like I am suffering creative withdrawals because I have been unable to dedicate this special time for myself.

Poetry is therapeutic, its a release an opportunity to really take stock of my feelings at that given time. An outlet I crave and the inability to relax in a moment and put words from my mind and heart to paper is so frustrating. In fact I feel quite irritable about it :(

Conflicted because I know I need to dedicate myself into other things right now......but emotionally I need my creative release and cannot afford the luxury of taking that creative time. Being Time poor means I can't put the right words down that really express what I feel........my expressive freedom is restrained and so is my mind!

I need inspiration

Isn't it always the way....Work/Life balance....we all strive to achieve it and often it's too late when we do because we have missed out on so much in the mean time.

What do you do to inspire yourself?

Hi! I take simple things happening around me and comically blow them out of proportion... Or my hubby will tell me something silly, and I run with it further still... I hope your time lets you write more... Let your mind soar on a normal topic of your life... Think about it for a few days... Then sit down when you have a few quiet moments and let your mind run away with a story poem... Then I usually shorten it for a more dramatic effect and pick a form to fit it into. Your friend. Carol

Certain writers inspire me, perhaps you need to read and not to write until you stock up on thoughts and images> Light & Love

Hi Debbie.....yes I do need to read more and not necessarily write....and be comfortable with that too. xo there is much in the way of ideas throught the words of others that trigger one's own thoughts to another path.

I just need a good challenge from Soup. More than 90 percent what I write comes from here!!! that is why I am thankful for the inspiration of the contests! the person who said to write when one is extremely happy or sad, that does not work for me. However, what they said about nature, yes, a good nature scene is inspiring. Also, i get inspiration from touching scenes of movies!

the best time to write a good poem is when you are extremely happy or extremely sad.....so put your self in the write moood to write a good poem.you can gain inspirations espacially when you hang out at the pool side or at a nice environment with nature......that beauty of such land scape could give you an inspiration to write a beautiful poem and dont forget to keep practicing contentiously...i have also experience what you are feeling now and this was the therapy i used
