I got to talking with some friends and one of them commented that I’ve had with me a pen and paper always in my hand since I was a teenager. I was always ready to write something down.
I asked them what they had in their hands 20 years ago, here is what the three of them said;
1. An Amiga joystick.
2. A soccer ball.
3. A mountain bike.
So what were you doing and what was in your hand 20 years ago?
I heard another Author say that it was a good idea to use a pen namer when writing outside your genre.
Since I’m new to this idea how many of you have used pen names and why?
For me, inspiration comes at the worst of times.
Usually at work and sometimes when I’m out with no access to a paper or pen to take notes. I’m not hip so I don’t have an iPhone or any mobile phone for that matter.
The Poetry of others
I’d have to say that reading the works of other poets really inspires me the most. It is where I get some of my best ideas from. So if my poems are terrible blame yourself.
Nah I’m just kidding.
I find that if I get to escape and see nature I become inspired. So I take the kids to the park along with a notebook and pen.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I’d like to know where other poets get their inspiration to write.
great place to get your work published
With woven wings we fly
In fear we glide
Wisdom one day will arrive
Night’s a mistress
None can ride
Existence is a weak disguise
Deep inside tears us apart
Broken will and broken hearts
In broken shards
Penetrates our flesh and bones
To each other
