Let’s talk about Sex…

Sex is one of those big topics that people either encourage others to write about or discourage others to even think about! It is hard to write about because whether you make love or screw (for lack of a better word), it’s personal. It’s about you and your needs versus your wants. Sex is push and pull, it’s something you must be really comfortable writing about to do it right. And by right I mean, translating what’s in your head to the page accurately.

Your comfort zone:

Sex is not something that everyone’s experienced, nor is it something that everyone wants. Continue reading Let’s talk about Sex…

“Write about what you KNOW”

If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy. – Dorothy Parker

Let’s talk about writing a bit, shall we? Continue reading “Write about what you KNOW”

Poet of the Month: Lang Leav

Hello everyone! I am so sorry for the lengthy wait for this post. I was in Puerto Rico then I returned to school and moved into a new place. So, I’ve been busy. But don’t think that I haven’t been thinking about you all and what I wanted to write next. This month’s Poet of the Month is Lang Leav. She is my favorite poet. I could live my entire life on her poetry alone, she is so talented.
I wanted to do Lang Leav right away because her new book came out in September of last year. However, Continue reading Poet of the Month: Lang Leav

Writing Resolutions.

No, I don’t mean how to write a resolution. Yes, I mean making a list of resolutions for you as a writer. I got really curious as to what is it that successful writers look forward to changing or bettering on the dawn of a new year? I took it upon myself to find out. And what I found, was actually quite disappointing.
Towards the end of 2014 I presented various topics to you guys. Topics such as What kind of Poet you are and whether or not you should curse in your poetry. Over time I’ve realized that as much writing advice as anyone can give you, Continue reading Writing Resolutions.

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:

1. You are too overwhelmed with: work, school, family
Take that time and finish what you need to get done. I’m not saying that writing isn’t important. I’m Continue reading When you shouldn’t write

Are song lyrics Poetry?

Let’s discuss this. There are people in this world who are known for writing songs about other people and people who are just famous for writing songs period. Mainstream: Pharrell, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, John Mayer etc. All those people. But being a lyricist doesn’t automatically make someone a poet, in my opinion. I think there are a lot of different types of songs that someone could write. Continue reading Are song lyrics Poetry?
