Hello,

Today is Wednesday 24th April 2013. It is 18:35 here in Malta, and I'm a bit sleepy because I am feeling sick. But don't worry ;)
 It has been more than a month since I last posted here. I have been busy. And I still am, 'cause I am studying for my exams.

You may be wondering, 'what about writing? Has she posted something else?' You are right. I have been working on something, and next week I will tell you via Facebook and Twitter, and of course here on my website. It's a surprise ;) So don't ask :roll:

Moreover, I have decided to leave a quote at the end of a blog ;) It may be a quote said by authors, actors, writers, etc.

I would really like you to leave me suggestions and feedbacks for my website and facebook, such as, is there something that I need to improve? What should I post and share? I will leave it to you.

I would really like to know you more, so please, (if you want), comment below or in my Guestbook. Where are you from? How old are you? Do you like my writing? Which poem/story is your favourite? Anything! I may be able to reply too!! :) :P

I'll look forward to read your comments.

By the way, don't forget to visit Teenage Writers , a website which I've created myself for teen writers to share their work!

Anyways, bye for now and thanks for reading.

Heyy!! :D

So.. at the moment, school life is pretty busy, and I have to dedicate a lot of time to my studies, but luckily, I always find some extra time to write, especially during the weekend.

Today, I've uploaded an essay: 'Should the vote be given to sixteen year olds?' and I suggest that you read it.

Moreover, I am currently working on a script, which I have mentioned in the previous days, but unfortunately it will take me a little time to finish it. Afterwards, I'll enter a competition.

I have something else going on at the moment (it's about writing :) ) but I'll let you know later on.

Well, that's all for now. Thanks for reading!

Poetry Tips + New Poem!

Posted on December 30, 2012 at 9:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello ! :D

So finally I had some free time and had the chance to write a new poem. I would really appreciate if you'd take a few minutes to read it. It is in My writing section, under the poems category. The poem is called Life and Time.

Moreover, I have found some tips on how to write better poems. Take all the time you need to read these useful tips. Thanks for reading!

1. Read lots of poetry. In fact, read a lot of anything if you want to produce better writing.

2. Write poetry as often as you can.

3. Designate a special notebook (or space in your notebook) for poetry writing.

4. Try writing in form (sonnets, haiku, etc.).

5. Use imagery.

6. Embrace metaphors but stay away from clichés.

7. Sign up for a poetry writing workshop.

8. Expand your vocabulary.

9. Read poems over and over (and aloud). Consider them, analyze them.

10. Pin a poetry forum or poetry writing group online.

11. Study musicality in writing (rhythm and meter).

12.Use poetry prompts when you’re stuck.

13. Be funny. Make a funny poem.

14. Notice what makes others’ poetry memorable. Capture it, mix it up, and make it your own.

15. Try poetry writing exercises when you’ve got writer’s block.

16. Study biographies of famous (or not-so-famous) poets.

17. Memorize a poem (or two, or three, or more).

18. Revise and rewrite your poems to make them stronger and more compelling.

19. Have fun with puns.

20. Don’t be afraid to write a bad poem. You can write a better one later.

21. Find unusual subject matter — a teapot, a shelf, a wall.

22. Use language that people can understand.

23. Meditate or listen to inspirational music before writing poetry to clear your mind and gain focus.

24. Keep a notebook with you at all times so you can write whenever (and wherever) inspiration strikes.

25. Submit your poetry to literary magazines and journals.

26. When you submit work, accept rejection and try again and again. You can do it and you will.

27. Get a website or blog and publish your own poetry.

28. Connect with other poets to share and discuss the craft that is poetry writing.

29. Attend a poetry reading or slam poetry event.

30. Subscribe to a poetry podcast and listen to poetry.

31. Support poets and poetry by buying books and magazines that feature poetry.

32. Write with honesty. Don’t back away from your thoughts or feelings. Express them!

33. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Mix art and music with your poetry. Perform it and publish it.

34. Eliminate all unnecessary words, phrases, and lines. Make every word count.

35. Write a poem every single day.

36. Read a poem every single day.
