Wow, thank you!
Wow, thank you!
This question is hard for me. I’m sure I pick from more than I realize. But I’ve gotten a lot of rhythmic inspiration and I guess content inspiration from the hip hop group Atmosphere and Slug’s lyrics and meanings/plots. Joanna Newsom. Spoken word. That’s all in the physical. As for content… Life and experiences! As well as observations, things that seem to be worth writing about, etc.
Did that answer your question? Like I said I’m sure there is so much more! Just a difficult question. Loved it though, thank you :)
thank you!…i think! <3
I wish I was getting published by an actual company, but I am self-publishing through lulu.com for my second book. For my first I used blurb.com but I’m going to see how I like Lulu; it seems easier.
If you have any other inquiries feel free. <3!
Absolutely nothing would make me happier. Please send me a picture of it when you’re finished. :) I am so honored and pleased. Thank you!
every single piece of writing on this blog, whether it’s poetry or not, is mine unless there is another person’s name at the end of it.
I really needed to hear this today. Thank you so much.
hey! wow! the idea that someone came back to check up on my blog after leaving tumblr for a while is so astonishing and nice, haha. i actually haven’t gotten to that point of editing anything yet, to be honest. i edit small things here and there, but i rarely go back and edit poems. eventually i could, but poems are sort of a different story.
as for short stories, prose, etc… i haven’t written anything long enough to really go back and edit. i’ve slowly been working on pieces that could be parts of novels, but i’m really just starting. i’m trying to just WRITE instead of focusing so much on the editing process. that isn’t nearly as fun. i need more material before i even go there. but i am working on this one “story” and i’ve edited what i do have (not much) a few times actually, and indeed it does always end better.
however, as much as editing isn’t fun… it’s necessary. and my writing always ends up better after editing. it’s hard, and that’s why you should always have another pair of eyes look at your writing to proofread. we don’t always catch things that other people do. because while writers are writing, they know what they see and know of the story, but the reader sees it a completely different way. so it’s important, even though rather tedious. as for poems, i sort of edit them while i write them… so it just goes hand in hand. i make sure they’re “perfect” for the time being before i publish them. but editing is never really over.
thanks for the question & still reading! <33
i really, truly appreciate that. it’s funny to me that the poetry i post that i really don’t like tends to be the most popular. maybe i should stop censoring myself so often, huh? i’m really happy to hear you could relate. it always makes me happy to read something from someone else that i can relate to. :) thanks for the message!
wow, thank you so much. it’s great to hear that people connect to my writing. :) it’s why i publish it here! i’ll do my best ;)
