I write other genres !!

I have a book soon to be published full of oneshots, short stories and prompts I have come up with.

In terms of novels, I write a few genres - currently toying with 2 main ideas. One romance / thriller , and one psychological thriller / fairytale retelling

You?

How does everyone feel about writing prompts? When it comes to poetry I find it difficult to get inspired by a prompt most of the time. I’ve read a lot of poetry guides that encourage all sorts of different things, but to me the writing seems a bit forced and shallow. I think the real magic is in the poem that just writes itself inside your head before you even knew it was there.


#74

I feel prompts that can help a poet think of more poetry sounds delightful but only if it encourages them to write one.


#75

Agreed. I’ve written some really cool stuff thanks to some prompts in the past. The problem I’m facing now is that the guide I’m reading wants me to write a poem about this or that in just about every paragraph. I want to get to the meat of the book, but I feel like I should be developing my writing habits along the way by just writing a poem whenever it asks me to… Easier said than done, especially when I’m uncomfortable with writing in blank verse and all that other old school jazz. I suppose the challenge is ultimately going to pay off, so maybe I should just write to write, they can’t all be winners but at least I’m writing, right?
