Yes! I am a poet!

Wow!  It seems my ceative lull is over.  Today is the first day this year where I have felt in full flow with my writing, where I have felt engaged with the content, where ideas for poems have just come to me.  I was worried for a while, worried that I couldn’t continue with writing, thinking that maybe I should just drift away and leave people wondering what happened to Karen? How I miss her writing.

I have written some fairly decent poems already this year but only a few and tbh I’m not that overwhelmed with some of them… little miss perfectionist only wants to write great poems!  But today my writer’s muse has returned and created my poems Centre Stage and Fear is a Prison (scheduled for later, so you’ll just have to check back 🙂 )

I now feel confident that I can move forward with my grand writing plans; fear of failure and of not being good enough creates a prison in the mind, only now I break free.

Hi, I'm Karen, creator of which is home to my poetry, art and general ramblings. I am the author two collections of poetry, 'Kaleidoscopic Beauty' & 'I am the Stars in the Sky', and the children's book 'All That Glitters' (not yet published). I also enjoy running.

  1. Do NOT drift away from here, Karen. Not that I like telling people what to do, but I don’t want to wonder where you’ve gone! I am SO glad you’ve had a burst of creativity and writing, that’s brilliant! I think the lull can happen and we get feeling stuck (I am also a case in point right now) and we have to ride it out. Inspiration and the ability to get back ‘on the horse’, so to speak, will happen when the time’s right. Woooohooo, I’m so happy for you to be back to moving forward again lovely 🙂

    1. You’ve got my email address, you’d track me down! 😀
      I can’t focus on creativity when there’s too much other stuff going on and right now there’s a heap of stuff (good and bad) that’s blocking my flow.
      Maybe when I’m back running properly I’ll be able to catch that horse ;D
