My Rough Patch.....
This is probably a long shot just asking.... but does anyone have advice on how to get out of this rough patch. I can't really get an inspiration so how does one find inspiration when they are completely at a loss. I love writing more than anything and I just wish I could get some help.
Just to get you going, why don't you think back to a day in the past, any day, and try to recall what happened and how you felt about it. Be absolutely honest, you don't have to show anyone. Then read it through a few times. See if it includes everything, especially your feelings about it. Then pershaps try to self-analyse yourself by figuring out and describing to yourself why you think you felt that way.
Not game? Well you did ask...
Ththank you tom I find ur answer very insightful and I appreciate any help writing really is my one true love and I will take any help to get outta the block
Reading work from other writers always inspires me...feel free to follow me if u need somewhere to start. Good luck with that
An age old question Alyx, and a good one. I, too. started writing at an early age, so I am pretty familiar with this.
The most important thing to me was that I couldn't stress on not coming up with material. You have to ride your strength and believe in yourself. This means simply that you have written before and you will write again.
I read your piece 'Your eyes, My eyes', and enjoyed it. I am quite certain that many thoughts and feelings went into this piece, probably more than made it on the paper. Possibly you could read through it a few times and relive those feelings that created that piece and find something in there new. You have changed a bit since then, maybe the relationship has ended or changed in some way. This will have built new experiences to draw from and can give you material stemming from that. Just remember, no matter how bad something is, there is always something to be gained if you look hard enough. Sometimes that belief is exactly where my new ideas come from.
You have written before, you will write again. A lot of poetry comes from a place that can't be coaxed or controlled, for certain mine does, and the best way to encourage that area is to remove the pressure and embrace whatever comes out, even if it's anger.
I wish you the best of luck; you won't need it, but I'd rather be lucky than good any day of the week.
I find that slow , slow , soulfull music inspires me , my wife says it puts her to sleep , but I find a piano , violin or guitar music is a great incentive to write ! The writers mind has to be slow , steady .........deeply troubled also helps me !...lol
