Poetry teaches us to be disciplined in our diction | Two Drops of Ink: A Literary Blog
One of my favorite reasons to write poetry is that I can shine a light on personal issues, both tragic and joyful, and wrap them in a riddle of alliteration, meter, and rhymes...I believe we must be true to ourselves as writers. We must write and write until we find our voice and our style. Look at all the writers that sacrificed themselves on the altar of the copy-cat, trying to write another “Fifty Shades” or the next vampire novel.
