I haven't written anything in over a month!  Sequiturist  24 Jun 10 12:40PM Thread Closed

Hi PCers, long time no talk! =)

Normally, I write at least 2 poems every month, but its been over a month and I have yet to write something.

Today, I sat down for hours and tried to start writing, but just could not think of anything to write about.

What should I do? I'm worried. :(

i havent written anything in over a year.

dont worry about it. use the time to think and absorb things, you cant force it.

it means you've been reading the critiques here which would drain anyones enthusiasm if taken to heart -- there is no one here who can help you presently just a bunch of loud mouthed posers getting their jollies from bullying Poets -- so go write somewhere where real dialogue takes place ...

you need to find controversy hypocrisy  etc

perhaps you are living with one dimensional characters or have not plunged into the depths of your psyche or sadly, your best days were during your embryogenesis.

Hi Zach!


You silly bear!  IF you find no need to write it means your life is on the square.
You are in your college era now, guy.  You have a most full and wonderful life.

You only need to write if you run out of money or mom's cooking (grin).

Get with the latest dance craze, btw? Styles like this should never be passed.
WRITE about the simple things if you must write at all?  Here, June/July collegiate

  One of the best things for me when I'm in a slump is to read poems by my favorite poets and it gets the creative juices flowing somehow.  It's not based on anything specific that I read, it just happens.

Good luck,

You might try automatic writing, make yourself comfortable and blank out all thoughts with an old-fashioned pen and paper to hand. Write out any stray thoughtstream that occurs without focus on the results and see where it leads after a while. As the full moon approaches you will find your creative powers waxing anyway, so there's really no need for concern - we all hit barren spells from time to time - it's a "normal" situation for a poet - how we handle it is what counts.
