    It's been several months since I've written any new material. What's the longest you've gone without writing anything?

    shit the key is to never stop writing.. i started writing raps/poems round summer an aint stopped longest ive gone witout writing was probably 2-3 days!!! ok basically take any situation out of your life that stresses you or saddens you or makes you extremely happy, an write about it, if there is no such situation GO create one.. i mean write off some sort of emotion i think it depends on what level your at but it will either come back fully on the first piece or after a few pieces after that youll start elevating again.. however you can take long breaks an come back to writing like it wasnt shit if you learned from life & books in that break cuz all that did was create shit to write about for you, i dont believe talent is something you lose if you aint tryin to lose it.. ok an i jus realized you werent askin for help damn [funny]

    last school year when i was a junior in high school i didn't write poetry for a few months at all.. The only thing that I wrote was journal entries. But, during the past summer I started writing poetry again.. and started building myself up again. It's really hard to start up writing again once you quit for awhile.. It takes alot of time and dedication to build yourself up again.. but, it is possible because, I'm doing it right now. The reason why I didn't write for a few months last school year cuz i was too depressed.. and I was never in the right mindstate and didn't have no motivation to write.. But, now that time has gone by.. I am writing poetry again..

    no fuckin joke...late November 2002, I was at the lowest of lows, questioning who I was and what I stood for and all that shit...if I hadnt started writing, I honestly think I'd be dead right now...

    i agree with TK... the key is to never stop writing...regardless of how much time you hav eto pursue it or whatever....the process is called FLUSHING...I think.....and its great if you're in a slump.....just write down anything that comes to mind......regardless of how bad or good or mixed or whatever it is........soon you'll be able to write whatever whenever,however.....the bad thing for me is that it doesnt last for long.....maybe a month.....or a couple of weeks...just dont stop tho......
