I’ve often said there are no rules for writers. Let me share the WORST AND MOST HARMFUL ADVICE I was ever given by others. 1) Write what you know. 2) You’ll have to polish every sentence you write three or four times. 3) Genius is one tenth talent and nine tenths hard work and 4) You’re not a real writer if you don’t write every day. —- ALL OF THAT WAS HARMFUL TO ME. ALL OF IT. IT HURT AND IT SET ME BACK. ——- So I say again, there are no rules. It’s amazing how willing people are to tell you that you aren’t a real writer unless you conform to their cliches and their rules. My advice? Reject rules and critics out of hand. Define yourself. Do it your way. Make yourself the writer of your dreams. Protect your voice, your vision, your characters, your story, your imagination, your dreams.

Screenplay Writing

It’s actually quite enjoyable once you get into it! I didn’t realise how complicated I’d made it for myself though with scenes overlapping each other and such, but the fun is figuring out how to make it work :)

single words: breathe, distress, seek, sabotage, hands

Breathe

The air surrounds
Cold and dry
Lungs full
Held for a few
Long
Seconds

Distress

Cracks appear
Smile turns to grimace
Shaking
Darkness shapes
Sullen figure
Of fear

Seek

Answers hidden
From top corner
To bottom rung
Not here
Unknown force
Still no light

Sabotage

This was not the plan
Events unfold
Disaster intended
Marked words unfurled
Growing darker
Growing tighter

Hands

Gripping neck
Pushing down
The end is soon
Calmness follows
Patience
A virtue

heldinhishands asked
write a poem based off your favorite lyric

My favourite lyric:

"The fiction will see the real, the answer will question still"

As the pen scratches paper
The writer can’t help
But realise the life
He is creating
Is mirroring the story
He plays out away from paper
And yet with his mind
His hive of creativity
He cannot find the answers
He cannot solve
What his life throws at him

Words bleed to page
And lives form to pieces
Characters only he knows
But people
Relatable
Fascinating
Subjects of his mind
Page falls to it’s end

Thanks for all the prompts heldinhishands! I’ll get round to them tomorrow at some point, but for now I must sleep!

Prompt me?

Can I get some prompts? Taking a break from screenplay writing and I’d like to flex my creativity a bit. Anything is cool, just message me with something and I’ll get something out as soon as I can :) thanks!
