First off all: Does the Club name have to include 'Club'? If so, I'll edit the name ^_^

This is a Poetry Club. Everyone (who writes Poetry) can join. You can post poetry discussions here, talk about poetry, talk about poets/poems, etc...

If you guys would like a rank system, you can vote on who's president, vice-president, etc...But I don't find it neccesairy.

Oh yeah... I'm not :P I don't mind... just as long as you put me on there sometime soon XD And don't forget NOT to put the dot in after Mr - it's worse than people calling me MCG (which a hell of a lot of people (including even Kairi and Andy) have done). XD

Um... What type of mood to you have to be when writing poetry? Is there a specific setting or environment you like to be in? (this is by personal opinion)

Oh that's a really good question. Is that intended for MLG or everyone here?

Everyone, of course!

Oh okay ^_^

Mood? Well some of my better works come when I'm heavely down and out or really mad at myself. Some other things like love, well it depends how in love I am with the guy ^_^ and at times when I'm totaly relaxed

As for a setting, either in the computer room by myself and in the dark, with the use of the computer's light of course. And my new favorite place. The furthest corner of the parking lot at campus. Not to scare people but it's because it's close to the graveyard and somehow that place helps me get in touch and graveyards in my opinion are a great place of spiritual knowledge, widom and of the past.

It has to be at night. Completely dark, only the computer light. Mostly I'm thinking or philosophying.(Yes I do that, problem?) I feel misserable at times, I feel happy at times. It depends. Mostly I'm playing guitar ^_~

My great passion AND inspiration is the past. I love history. It makes me feel down at times aswell. It all depends actually.

There you have it. It depends ^_^

Sorry to double post, but I think the DPS can be something quit intresting. But we'll need to start some discussions, rating, etc...

Any ideas? :)
