    It is funny somedays the writing is easy (and if I am lucky even good) other days the writing is hard and almost forced. Insperation can come from the most unusual places. one day I am driving down the highway (I drive a lottttttt of miles each day) and in the medium strip there is the rements of a stone wall, it gets me thinking. Sometimes a song comes on the radio and envokes a feeling and blam there is another idea. I think Stephen King said best ' You write because you have to, your mind would explode if you didn't'

      I agree, even if it's taken ages for me to find this entry of yours! Stephen King was right too. Don't explode, keep writing! Paul.

    I'm looking for new poetry forms - either recent inventions or forms from other languages. Suggestions?

      An interesting form I came across a year or so ago is the Terzanelle. It's a cross between the Terza Rima and the Villanelle; and is one of the most recent hybrid forms I know of, though it's probably ... more

    Write from the heart, let it flow without critic, express yourself, and then, if you feel like, brush it :)

    Hello poem writing friends! I am currently writing a rather large experimental set of poems, the second of which is called [DENSITY]. I am requesting your readership on it and I want your gut reaction of emotion added as a comment. No it is not classical, it is pure raw energy stream of consciousness prose designed to evoke a sensation from the reader. I need to know how it affects YOU. I can take the abuse if you feel the need to lambaste the work, just please leave something... Thanks!

    I one day hope to be published on a site where there aren't popups when I'm trying to write. If anyone has tips on how to do that, I would be truly impressed.

      Carry a stick and pretend your playing wack-a-mole. They never end, but at least you'll have fun, and work out pent up agression too- it's win-win.

    Hello to all,

    I have a number of pieces posted here that you may find of interest. I do not write traditional or formalist poetry, although I enjoy reading some of it.
    My writing is a free-flowing expression, not particularly bound by conventions, and is relatively uncomplicated. If you like, let me know what you think.
