I’m considering entering a poetry contest this year. I just came across a very interesting contest at very reputable local University. I think I will enter it; you’ve got to be in it, to win it right? I think 2016 is my year to just take the plunge. To believe in myself. I’m going to publish my poetry book and enter as many poetry contests as I possibly can! Now to decide which poem to enter?
On my morning run, passing people, I would say hello. The passes by would look at me as if I was going to rob them. I thought they were going to jump into the bushes; like I gave them a fight. Now I’m not a very scary person. I’m only quite small. It was early morning, and I did roll out of bed, and out the door. But hey I had sunglasses on. It just amazes me, how people are so closed off in our world. What are we afraid of?
In a recent post, why do you write? I asked you why you write?
This post received an overwhelming response, and the answers were amazing.
The reasons why we write, are varied and passionate, but all share a common connection.
It seems as though, we write to express ourselves, as individuals, our thoughts, our feelings. It is a passion, so innately ingrained in our psyche.
As creative people, even if we tried we could never resist the urge to put pen to paper.
So I was so impressed with the response, I thought it might be nice to share them.
