I have hinted in previous posts that one of the things that helps me quite a lot is poetry. I write sporadically, but when I do it always gives me something.
Well, I have decided to have one day a week or so as Poetry Day. I will be either putting a recent work of my own on here, or will be talking about someone elses work, or pehaps a collection that I have got a lot from. The title of this post means that if I write it on here, then it has to happen. I am terrible for talking myself out of writing as “I will never be as good as XYZ” or “No one will want to read my scribblings”, I am sure you get the general idea.
I hope this doesn’t have too many of you running in fear, poetry has a bad rap in a lot of people’s minds, especially “self help” poetry from a self confessed depressive… but bear with me and let’s see where it goes, ok? I PROMISE it’s not going to be all woe is me, and actually virtually none of my writing touches directly on depression.
I am working on somethign right now, so hopefully the first Poetry Day isn’t far off!
