    Let us stop sulking poets about our abilities, give yourself a room to grow and enjoy the journey. It is normal to doubt yourself but not to critisize yourself let others do that for you.

    When inspired go with the flow don't worry about errors those can be corrected later on...write about what you know and you can always research your topic online or at the local library..mostly enjoy your creation and share when you are ready to release your work...remember it is the poets' view so you are the sole voice of your poem..

    it is always a pleasure to see my pen scribbling something on paper! Even though it may not be appealing, at least, I learn to write!

      The written word is not always appealing, but then it does not have to be at first. If you give words and letters time to evolve, then you can create something worth reading

      5 things that may help: 1. First up, don't panic. A lot of poets think that their work is not very good. 2. Don't be afraid to change words in your poems and have a play before submitting them. ... more

      No substitute of reading good poetry. Good does not depend on popularity, the writing which brings another journey through intelligence and aesthetic essence of beauty.

    I started writing poetry, stories, and short stories in my childhood. My late dad encouraged me too much, my teachers, and my environment too. I loved poetry too much, so I spent a lot of time on different kinds of global poems to all poets. Thanks.

    Writing poetry is a great job, so one must read a lot of different poems, listening to other poets' audio tapes, and even write any style. Thanks.

    Poetry writing, to me, is the cheapest but the most elegant way of communicating your feelings to the world.....When the poet employs clear and simple diction, combines passion with classical themes, his message lives for centuries.....lets be clear as we can!

      There are many people who can't speak or hear, but who can read and write extremely well. It's not always down to clarity of the poem, but the message it has hidden in it. If all poets had 100% clea ... more

    Go wherever you want, do whatever you like but return when writing calls your attention to wait some moments to hear the soul talking.

    Thinks of benefit from writing comes from much lower level of thought. Writing only be the shelter for one who wants a life very much a man's life.

    I use to write late at night with some instrumental music on the background. That helps me relax and find the rythm I want my poem to have.
    I don't use any writing technique like rhymes or something. I just feel and write. Of course I read my poems again and again until I find something to complete them. I remember a poem I tried to write before I sent my book for publishing. It was unfinished because I couldn't find the exact words to express my feelings. I let myself listen to other poems (by different poets) that made me feel like the way I felt and I found the words to complete my poem and send my book to the publisher.
