My son has a poem competition in his English class. They go up against the whole class then 4 people later until someone wins at the end. My son won and the poem is so cute lol. The way he can just come up with stuff and to have it rhyme...teenage brain lol.

@byebye That is so cool! I've never entered poem contests because I was always afraid of failing. Plus, they always required you to remember it by heart. I'm terrible at memorizing words. I'm excellent at memorizing numbers though.

His poem contest was fairly easy. The teacher lets them write their own poem or find one on the internet. But most of the kids wrote their own. My son wrote about sport and the other kid wrote about his crush on a girl in his class lol. The students voted for my son to win because they thought it's boring listening to someone's love life hahahha

I used to write a lot and i got all my inspiration from everything and everyone around me. Back then i would often go people watching in central park or sipping coffee in an outdoor seating and wonder what their stories are. Of course it would be rude of me to ask, so i started imagining and built a story around it. My head was and still are full of stories, just too lazy to write it. Plus my grammar is horrible.

@KitKat516 I use to wonder about ppl and their stories too. I thought about drawing inspiration from a crowded place but I'm a bit introverted and don't really like being around people much. Partly due to the fact that I like to avoid strangers as much as possible. Socially awkward and everything, lol I'm full of stories but I get distracted easily. My grammar sucks as well, lol

My grammar sucks also but I find writing so relaxing. To think of ideas and write them down distract me from other things...sometimes I get lost in my own story then halfway through I get bored and wonder why I even get started in the first place lol

@byebye Writing was my way of expressing but as I got older, I rarely like to express anything. I guess growing up there was a lot to say but once I got through a certain point, I just take things as they are.

I am an introvert so expressing myself by writing is like therapy lol. I can be alone all day long and it doesn't bother. I get disconnected when I am in a big crowd. It just overwhelms me. And the older I get, I realized less drama and being alone is actually not bad.

I'm the same way, the older i get the more I like my alone time and space. More people = more drama.

I'm always wondering about how to write too. I try to get out of my comfort zone like see a weird movie or new book or write based off photographs. Or sketch. Badly.

@NongS Same here. I'm way too comfortable with how I normally write. Need some new inspiration.

I do creativity prompts from an old book I have, like write based on this quote, or link these five strange concepts together Even IG has some of these. Or take a poem and try to write an anti-poem. One of my favourites was to write a poem beginning with the words - to be or not to be, that is the question.

This is so relatable right now. Lol. I'm in a huge mood to write but once I get to it Idk what to write then get bored.

For me, whenever an idea pops up in my mind, I write it down right away. Then I will compare it to all my other random ideas and see if anything will go well together. Then I would purposely look for a song that goes well with that storyline. Whenever I get stuck, I will listen to that song and get motivated again. Is it only me who does this?

@Bieluvr that's a great concept! Do you mind if i use it? It's like creating a mood-board!

@Bieluvr I wrote Life in your hands pretty much because of Far Away by Nickleback lol. That song, back then motivated me to write a bunch of stories hahaha
