    I wouldnt punish yourself for not feeling inspired... I think of inspiration more as a a mood- it comes and goes as it pleases. Punishing lines teach your mind that it has to be inspired all the time and so when the mood leaves, you dont know what to do and the poem comes out as choppy and unrefined.
    If you need inspiration, Pinterest is always a good spot. Also, write about wgat you are passionate about. The words are there, I promise you! You just have to get it onto the paper :)

    Best of luck in your writings!
