Hello my names, John I write poetry but mostly in the paragraph form, it just doesn't come out right when I try to writing it any other way. It can be changed to other forms once it has been written. But the words come to me and see them in such a manner that i have to write that way or i get mentally blocked any one else have a similar problem like this? I write all the time. I have unfinished finished books I have writing also. one a scifi(This one is the fartherest along and is the most diverse i have written in story telling) , one fantasy(Always wanted to write one of these types cause their my favorite reads) , and one a mystery(Not Sure About This It Just Came To Me One Night, Never Cared Much For Mysteries So This One Is Kind The One Off Base Of The Lot) . Any advice from the authors out their have any tip on how to keep the wheels spinning so to speak?
