The first thing to start with when writing, is to remember what you are writing for. If it is an essay or piece of prose, then it is important to keep the subject in mind, even if subconsciously. However, writing poetry is a little different. With poetry, you can meander, turn sideways, backwards, and do somersaults, but still come back to the subject.
I also find that creative writing gives me fulfilment in different ways, based on whether it is poetry or prose – poetry requires shorter bouts of attention, but can be just as fulfilling as a release or piece. I also find that I, unlike many other writers, do not edit or change a poem much on afterthoughts.
Let me pen you a few words here:
To you I sit and
Write of the now and the
Forever more, still
As you reside in my
Heart will you be with me
Malobi, thank you for sharing with us. More poems in 2014!
