Sometimes, when you have pages of homework and essays to craft, leaving behind reality and entering the realm of poetry and imagination can seem both heavenly and a near impossible venture. I can completely relate to people who search in vain for topics to write about—some deep, metaphorical prompt that will fire off the entire writing piece. Yes, they are extremely elusive to catch, especially when you’re searching so hard that you sometimes forget why you’re even looking for substance to write about. Well… here I’m going to tell you a little bit about how I go about searching for material to write about, and how I overcome the horrible affliction that is a writer’s block.
We talk about writing, people, the things that inspire us. Anything worth putting the written (and spoken) word to.
