I Am a Poet and a Writer

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 645 People

    I'm not much of a poet,

    though I respect those who are. I have written a young adult novel and am wondering what to do with it. I'm thinking maybe of Kindle Direct Publishing, but I haven't fully committed to anything yet.

    Title: Deliverance is the Children's

    bread Sometimes I wanna stay It's where I get away From everyday  Might run into some other problems  But that's ok  Nothing I can't maintain  But to stay here is in vain Nothing lives here but heartache and pain  I mean is the same thing only I can maintain  I know i can...

    I'm working on a new draft of my masters thesis

    and I need some readers to let me know if what I've got so far is moving in the right direction. Comment or shoot me a message if you're up for reading a "hot off the presses", Craig Newman original.

    Well I never really considered myself a writer

    or poet...although I enjoy writing some every so often. I remember when I entered a poetry/writing contest back in high school and I was the only one in my school to get an award. I felt unstoppable. I was skittish about it being announced on the intercom BUT I thank my...

    My skin is not a tough armor,

    its too thin and easily broken. The air i am inhaling is attenuating with each gasp for breath. My shins are quivering and small hairline fractures litter their outer most layers from too many end of my ropes falls to my knees. The heart that beats within my rib cage is tattered...

    A mutual song writer/poet just brought up an

    interesting thought that is extremely resonating. The fact that he wrote very few songs last year compared to previous years. This year, I only wrote one or two, whereas, the year before, the words poured out. My heart just wasn't in it. Hoping this new year is better in many...

    I think I have found my "voice".

    I just need to raise it a few octaves, learn a couple more dialects and learn when just a whisper will do instead of an out loud scream. I write in prose, verse, narrative & song because the words are always finding their way out of me...and I fear what would happen if I let...

    CHAPTER 1 For me, writing is a way of living,

    it is a way to feel free. There are no restrictions; it is just you. Anyone can be a writer; it doesn't matter if your stories haven't been posted, the most important thing is that you enjoy what you are doing. And what I mean, it is that each word has to have a meaning for you...

    You can't just write it .

    You have to craft it, chisel it, making sure the voice doesn't stammer about like it's lost in a crowd. You have to bring yourself to pull off the layers, find the pieces that fit and glue it back together again. Sometimes you'll have to crush your words with a mortar and...

    You can not beat the feeling of

    when you have composed something that means so much to you, when you have expressed yourself completely just in one poem or song. It's amazing, this is why I compose my own creativity all the time. :)

    As an 8yr old, I wrote a bit of poetry.

    In song format. But when I chose to share -with the adult in my life who was Supposed To & Claimed To love me the most- she huffed dismissively: "What Is this nonsense?! I don't have time for This..." And, apparently, it crushed my li'l heart. For, from that point forward...

    I don't think when I write my poetry. I feel my feelings and let my pen do the thinking while I look the other way. I honestly have no clue what I've written until I know I'm finished with it... and usually, when I'm severely depressed, that's when I do my best writing. Although...
