On Writing Perspectives

Hello Poetteers,

In part one I talked about controlling the narrative. Writing from a human’s perspective you didn’t experience can be problematic. There are other ways you can write from other perspectives that aren’t your own. Explore and personify emotions, colors, nature, and other inanimate objects like furniture, etc.

Writing is exploratory. Within ourselves we have different perspectives on our own experiences. Write what happened but also explore what you wish happened. After you write about a negative moment explore the positives. Write to the child in you then write to the adult in you. After pointing out your weaknesses look for your strengths.

Analyze your old poetry and look for a new angle you can use. You may just surprise yourself.

stay inspired,
Fida
