    For anyone who's been lagging lately. Feeling like you have no motivation, no ways to stretch your creative capacities...try writing in form!

    Beyond a meaning, it gives you the opportunity to build up your mind. Forces you to choose your words carefully.

    It's not easy if you've never done it before; but be patient.

    Try a sestina.

    Let's get writing. The realm isn't the busiest forum, but at one time, it was poppin. Let's bring it back. Get active!

    Why can't a post a new thread?

    I had heard that one needs to leave a certain number of replies in order to post. My account has already been activated. I've finally mustered up the courage to share a few things. Is it a sign??? LOL Can anyone offer me some help?

    well I think you do need a certain amount of replies

    so what I suggest is that you just go and read sum of other peoples stuff
    and reply to them
    and then you should be good

    tell me wut y'all think

    the task is hazardous
    vast classics of ass kickings
    magicians to mathmeticians
    cant understand this shit
    mechanical switch quick
    open the canister lid
    rap im mastering it
    new hits, going 2 tints
    darker on blueprints
    who sent this exclusive
    little elusive alcohol
    abusive nuissance
    throwing in his 2 cents
    like who's this loose bitch
    I would'nt touch her in
    person thats for certain
    cursing worst then merchants
    full clip a bullet no bullshit
    the ends a slick little sick
    slit across the wrist missed
    im pissed off this shits soft
    switch glocks to hit cops
    in six spots get lost
    get intoxicated switch blocks
    like lock smiths pick locks
    my fist talks get boxxed
    crip walk on hip hop in flip flops
    I play games like x box
