that’s not something i am comfortable divulging publicly, but if you send me an ask off anonymous i would be open to tell you! xx
disclaimer: i am not the best writer, not even close, and an even worse teacher and giver of advice.
that being said!
firstly: read. read everything. read classics, modern poetry, the poetry your friends write. ready poetry that you hate, or poetry you love over and over. read novels and articles, literally anything. to read is to learn to write.
thirdly: don’t edit until the end. it’s so easy to get caught up in finding the perfect phrase to forget to finish the piece. get the words down, and then go back to make fixes.
fourthly: trust yourself. trust yourself to find a voice and develop as a writer. everyone’s a beginner, and everyone feels like a beginner for a really, really long time - the best thing to do as a writer is to allow yourself trust.
also: thank you so much!
as i’ve learned in the past day, seeing one’s own posts reblogged onto one’s own dashboard is a surreal experience.
thank you for all the love recently, everyone!
thank you so much! i’m glad you enjoy it.
thank you; and i’m sure your writing is lovely!
