My answer to this simple question is: Poetic. While I enjoy writing in other formats, as well, poetry is what I consider the hardest format in which to write. There may be many forms of poetry, but the basic fact is that poetry forces you to use your vocabulary to it's fullest extent, as well as distill down what you're trying to say to something that can be passed on as poetry. Prose writing, while satisfying, is so much easier, in my humble opinion.
Making the assumption that you are asking about style, I would have to say that I love prose. The last several pieces I have done have been either essays or so close to an essay in style that the difference was undetectable. I like detailed imagery and clean lines, every word needs to fit perfectly or I'm just not happy.
If you are asking about how I write, what tools I use, the answer is strangely more difficult. I use to require a notebook and a pen at all times, just in case something came to me, and if I didn't have them close at hand I was a nervous a fidgety. Now though, after over a dozen years working on a computer, I find that writing on paper when I really want to be writing is too cumbersome; I cross out more lines than I write and end up wasting almost every notebook I use! Now everything I write, even my scribbled notes goes onto the computer as quickly as I can get it there.

When you write, what do you also surround yourself with?For example, do you have music on in the background, the television, and do you make sure your favorite snack is with you? Do you drink coffee or tea? And do you write from handwritten notes, or do you start typing away?

Now that summer is almost here, do you think you will have more time to write or less?For some people, summer is vacation time. That means they can either write, write, write or slack off and just enjoy. I'm curious to see which way it will go.

I love to write about life experiences and give my opinions. Poetry is also one of my favorite ways to write.

I'm interested in poetic process. I personally believe the real writing comes in the editing stage and that all first drafts, without exception, are abysmal. As a result, I edit and rewrite a piece multiple times over days and sometimes weeks before I deem a poem acceptable for...
