I figured I should start -- I want to know how your creative process works, do you follow structure heavily, do you write from the heart? where are you when you write? etc. etc.
All of my poetry that I have written presently has occurred mostly from just me pouring my emotions onto the page, literally, if you look at my poem "How?" It is so disorganized and clunky, but it is truly how I felt at the time. I usually write in school, which is where I am when I get hit with my moods so hard, in the presence of my girlfriend. This process changed for me when I wrote "The Last Chance" where I tried to come to a conclusion about what to do about my girlfriend and I's situation, by writing a conversation between me and some other person, creatively and insanely. I came to a conclusion and put it on the page as a freeform poem.
Normally I have a few lines that come into my head, maybe one, but never too many, and then I write a poem around that. Because so many of mine are slam poems, I use a rhyming website and a near-rhyming website and that gives me more ideas than you would think, just looking at all the words and thinking how they would fit into the poem. I usually write at least one full draft in one sitting and then maybe edit it later.
I'll leave this open and see if it gets any new discussion, but please don't bump threads over a month old since the last post. Not to mention most of that post seems rather off-topic/spammy as well...
