When you write poetry, is it difficult to allow yourself to write what you really want to write? Do you censor your words? I know I do. I rarely say what I really want to say. Not that I want to be mean or anything like that, I just can't seem to allow myself to write freely, not truly. Sometimes I think I come close. I am going to set that as my one and main intention for OctPoWriMo.
How about you? are you going to break free with your words? Are you going to allow your words free rein on the page?
What does that look like, I wonder?
I had an epiphany last night and wrote this:
When you suddenly realize
it just doesn't matter
and you write
whatever the hell
you want to write.
I believe that poetry can be anything, that isn't the problem. It is actually saying what we want to say. The thing is, do you even know what it is that you aren't saying? We just might have to figure it out together.
Do you have an intention for your poetry during OctPoWriMo or are you just going to go where the words lead you?
