Waiting for inspiration

If I look upon a cloud to wait for inspiration

Will it come in time or will it all be wasted?

    What I’ve found has helped my creativity in times of stress, is looking for escapism. I’m finding balancing therapeutic writing with escapism is quite good. Or not necessarily escapism, but to describe things using terms from an area of life which inspires you. So for me, that’s using celestial terms. Won’t necessarily work for anyone else. 💙

    Another good method is using a prompt. I’ve been noticing people writing poems based on prompts from this:

    The other day I started writing a poem which is a tautogram. I got the idea from someone else’s poem which was inspired by a prompt.

    And above all, with prompts especially, viewing it as fun and amusement rather than trying to craft anything special, is helpful. Just ideas! Hope you’re ok 🤗

      Escapism would be nice! However, it’s hard because I pretty much do the same things every day: school work, TV, eating, taking the dog for a walk, writing at least a poem even if I have to force it out. Sometimes I add cleaning and organizing. I would like to incorporate working on my novel, but I have so many exams to study for that I feel guilty for moving my attention away from school.

      I try and look at prompts too! Thanks for the link, I’ll take a look at it. What is a tautogram? Do you usually write your poems in a certain form, or do you do free style.

      I’m doing okay, just stressed :(. I hope you’re also doing okay!!! What have you been up to?
