    what do you all do when you have writer's block? I don't really have writer's block.. because, I mean I've been writing and all.. but, I'm just sitting here chillin.. trying to come up with something that I like but, don't know how to start.. What gets you going.. when you are starting on a piece?

    actually a lot of writer's say the best way is to simply keep writing. even if you think it sounds like trash if you keep writing something will eventually come out that you like.

    Couldnt have said it better than that...After smoking a couple bowls of weed shit seems to just come to me...but if you dont abuse substances like me it can be frustrating I been there, maybe just hope for a word you hear or an image you see to spark an idea..

  13. I think writers block means you are low on experience, and a subtle way of telling you to go out and become the earth.
    a poet is nothing without travel

    yeah i feel that....writers block to me is a sign that i need to elevate my level of rhyming and find better substance within my topics......


    continual writing does help tho..........but getting through the trash is just plain torture!!

    when i can't write anything i like, i just start writing. i clear out all the stuff i don't like by writing down, and pretty soon i write one of my best poems.

    i read a lot...good quotes and sometimes lyrics to a good song may set off my mind.....

    but something that always helps me is doing simple poems...just one 2 or maybe 3 words a line like this

    my heart
    screamed yet
    my lips
    sat still
    as eyes
    held back
    tears of
    a lost
    mans frustration
    holding on
    to equations of
    miscalulated steps
    begging for
    mercy in
    the devils
    holly temple
    everything so
    simple yet
    i havent
    caught on
    so tell me
    where
    when
    how
    shall i
    find salvation
    in a
    land of
    sin and temptation
    greedy i
    wanted more
    then the basics
    but none of that
    was nessecary
    in palms
    faces burried
    ashamed...
    still in
    search of the
    ever illusive

    freedom


    haha...i kinda went wild with that....i love that lil exercise...i reccomend it to everyone

    ^^^And that would work well also in the "GOVT." but Imma leave that alone for now...Anyway, I am lucky enough not to suffer from writers block, but one of them up there said that it's because you lack experience, good point. It is said that a poet looks at the world the same way a man looks at a woman. So if you understand that, then you can easily understand how to walk past things and see the beauty in all...If not, then maybe you should just try sitting and listening to some music or read like lpoet said. The more you read the more you enhance your vocabulary. I write a lot too, so that's why I dont get writers block, I stretch my means of writing out as far as possible...Anyway, be easy...1
