Breaking out of your comfort zone. Be fearless to find your writing voice.

Do you ever get in a rut with your writing and creativity? That’s what I’ve felt with my poetry of late. My long form has been pretty much the same old same old. Even when it’s lyric poetry it gets a little old to me.

Every now and then I like to experiment. Some of you may have noticed my experimenting the past few days. With this being National Poetry Month, I decided to change things up. Yes, I am doing the A to Z Blogging Challenge this month but I am also writing a poem each day. Some may not be as experimental in the rhyming scheme that I am currently working with, but you’ll see something each day.

I believe different styles of poetry can bring out different emotions and attitude. For creatives, as I call them, there is never just one creative aspect. We may focus on one but there are usually many facets. As one facet’s edges become worn and dull, turn your creativity and work on a different one. As you work that one, the other facet’s edges become sharper.

The more you write the more you discover what you can do and then use that new experience with what came before. Never be afraid to try something new. Even if it is for your eyes only, you will learn something from it. It’s like Haiku. I can’t tell you how many people tell me they never tried it before, were afraid of it, thought it was too hard, but now are addicted to it.

My writing tip today is to experiment. Get out of that comfort zone and find out something you never knew you could do before. That’s how I found my writer’s voice for a novel I am working on. I wrote and wrote and wrote, anything and everything and then one day, there it was.

Let’s connect.

  1. “I wrote and wrote and wrote, anything and everything and then one day, there it was.”- That I am taking with me! Sometimes I think my writing is not good enough- I need to write for me first so I’m just going to write and write and write and try new ways and experiment- Thank you for the advice Ronovan.
