    I love writing poetry, and eventually want to write songs as well! Im currently trying to get myself to continue writing. My depression has really been hitting this past week and it’s been making me feel discouraged about continuing to write.

    I'm a novelist and indie author. It was really hard making traction for the first 10 years or so, but I found my flow. Writing is also how I cope with a lot of my trauma and has been good for my depression. Nano can be tough, but don't get down on yourself if you struggle with it. Writing is better than not, imo.

    YES, but I don't write like books, I write things like scripts since I plan to animate some of the things I write

    I'm no novelist, but I like to journal! I like to meditate and write down my thoughts, which helps keep me centered and no so focused on thoughts that are more intrusive. I also keep a positivity log so that I have something to look back on when I'm not feeling great.

    I was a slam poet (competitive spoken word poetry) . Absolutely loved it!

    • Alyh

      poetry is amazing. I was never in slam poetry but I was in poetry club and have read my poems in front of hundreds of people at a random place. Didn't know that many people would be there.

        I’ve written even like fake poetry as a really young person, ya know like rhymes and what not. In high school I made it into a book which put a fire under my belly and in college I heard slam for the first time. I switched my style and was all the better for it and am a much better writer now too! And yes! People love spoken word! And slam/spoken word is also so engaging, expressive and full of raw emotional power. It is liberating and feels like freedom. Chicago has something called Louder than a Bomb every which is a a competition for kids of middle school age to college. And kids who grew up in it still are a part of it after graduating. The culture is amazing and people get down and dirty and go wild! Anyway, your post has created a spark in my mind and I may do some free writing. Thanks!!

    I'm writing a book so I'm not sure about poems or songs but when I can't write for awhile I rewrote what I already wrote. Kind of like editing, I basically rewrite what I already wrote but in a different way to see what I think flows better or just sounds better. I think it also helps improve my writing in general

    • Alyh

      I definitely understand this and it does help! I have books I started at age 11 I still rewrite. It's very helpful and also fun to see how your writing develops. Would you like to be in my writing server? You could share some of your work

    I'm trying. I have so many stories to tell. Just can't motivate. I'm an excellent writer. I just want to fall off the earth when I think about writing now. I know it's cuz I'm overwhelmed with emotions and writing brings them out.

  • Songbird24

    I write. I struggle with a lot… I also get lost in editing and revisions and perfectionism and RSD. It’s hard to finish writing.
