When you shouldn’t write

I am a firm believer in writing every single day. I really try to do so. But honestly, that get’s hard to do especially if you have a job that doesn’t include writing. I am a full-time student in my third year of college and sometimes I go two weeks without writing because I just have too much work to do. But I want to give you some reasons not to write, and what you can do during those non-writing times that will help you when you return to the paper and pen.

Reasons not to Write:

Moving on: This month’s Poet of the Month calls himself The Whiskey Writer, so I thought we should as well. He writes about what seems like very personal things about love and loss. I think a lot of people can relate to what he says and how he expresses his feelings.

The Whiskey Writer’s Style:

He uses a lot of metaphors and memories. These memories are usually painful experiences between two people. The Whiskey Writer’s poetry is the collaboration of words that everyone feels but never says. He says plainly all the things that hurt too much to say.
